clothes to you
A urn collection made out of the clothes of the deceased (2017)
'Clothes to you' is the outcome of a material research, focused on how to make a new stone / marble lookalike material, which is strong and durable but also calming and soft at the same time. This new material is mainly made out of old fabrics and clothes. Currently malessa.studio uses this material in their new urn collection 'clothes to you', made out of favourite clothes of the deceased and degradable bio resin.
All urns are made by hand out of the favourite clothes of the deceased. By re-using the clothes of the loved one, malessa.studio does not just create awareness of re-using existing materials, but also creates a personal closeness for mourners to the deceased. A new way to help reducing the anxieties of bereavement.
