Rio sorts scraps by color and splashes them onto a table where she and her team “paint with fabric scraps” to create this colorful and yummy 'Halo Halo' version of the ✨ICE✨GEMS✨BAG✨

With our continuous effort to create solely from textile waste that we save and restore comes the problem of these teeny-tiny fabric scraps. After months of staring at bags full of these tiny pieces just growing but never throwing, it took a step back into Rio’s 2018 notebook of doodles! Rio had stuck an empty packet of a local favorite snack, Ice Gems Biscuits. Her notes were ideas on how to incorporate the idea of seeing the tiny sugar biscuits through the colorful plastic packaging. It’s 2023 and we had saved 3 bags full of mesh, lace, and sheer fabrics through a local bridal stores leftover scraps. After multiple prototypes and sample pieces, the ICE GEMS BAGS started to come to life! Mimicking the snack, you can see over 3000 pieces of the tiniest fabric scraps through different colors of sheer fabrics that make up each unique bag. Yum!✨
