How do we wear our handmade textiles without cutting them and sacrificing their original value?

It has been my long-time goal, to make clothes out of beautiful traditional textiles. But the more I do this now, the more difficult it is to work with limited one-of-a-kind pieces because they are too valuable to cut... but how can I create uncut designs which are not just your typical wrap sarongs?

So... this is an ongoing project which I will continue to develop under the name #uncuttextiles and #wastratanpapotong.

The objective is to create everyday clothing using one-of-a-kind textiles which can be transformed back into their original value when it's done with its function as a piece of clothing. It can be unsewn back into a scarf/sarong or redesigned into another fashion piece, therefore prolonging its life cycle. Some don't even need sewing at all, it is just a matter of styling, wrapping, and tying. This also gives inspiration to the consumers on how to wear these creatively, hoping within time, handmade non "mass-produced" traditional textiles gain more popularity.
