Regen by Wendy Andreu


Wendy Andreu has devised a system for producing water-proof garments. She makes these items of clothing without sewing or cutting patterns. Called ‘Regen’, the fabric is double-sided with water-repellent latex on one side, and cotton rope on the other. Regen products are made by coiling the rope around a laser cut steel mould and covering it in latex. Where the dark latex seeps between the light rope it creates shading and textural detail that make each item unique. All the moulds can be used multiple times without any loss of quality, adding to the value of this innovative sustainable tool and material.
