American fashion designer and artist Ann Wiser turns Jakarta’s waste into bags and accessories. Although she’s since moved to Manila, her idea lives on in Indonesia’s XS Project. The foundation buys discarded detergent bags scavenged from the trash, and then hires members of various communities to wash and sew them into new products. The resulting wastepaper baskets and pencil cases are a graphic spectacle of repetitive patterns. All profits from the sale of these items are ploughed back into the foundation’s work.
