Carier is a local brand which aims to transform some of Hong Kong’s hidden identity into products for a young generation. As a social project its production involves the design and making of soft fashion accessories by using locally sourced recycled fabric as well as cooperating with sewing experts from social organisations. The products thus include the story of producers and patterns and structures found in Hong Kong. Young people benefit from knowledge and skills from the last generation. The stories connect young and old.
This project has applied some principles of fair trade such as respecting cultural identity and encouraging customers to appreciate the locally sourced materials as well as the handcraft and hard work of senior producers.
