Transforming the fabric scraps of the city's largest garbage dump into a luxury product through an insertion project for women
Payatas is one of the largest landfills in the city. A place to live where an informal economy has developed, among other things, around the collection and reuse of fabric falls that local women weave to make carpets, mats, etc. These women are often exploited (poor working conditions, black salaries ...). In order to reintegrate them into a formal economy and to remunerate them for their true value, Reese calls on them to participate, alongside the greatest Filipino designers, in the creation of luxury bags.
