Student Creates Jackets That Becomes A Tent For Refugees

Fashion can be so much more than just statements of beauty and that's what these UK design students had in mind when they created this convertible jacket that doubles as shelter for families escaping war and genocide around the world. 

Millions of people are facing the horrific realities of having to leave everything behind and find shelter in far-away places, often with young children. This jacket is made of tyvek which is affordable to produce and converts into a tent that can sleep a small family! 

 

 

"Design isn't just about wealth and exclusivity...but can do something about bigger problems." 

Fashion often only focuses on solving wardrobe needs. This garment shows the thoughtfulness designers can apply to helping people in need. 

Fed By Threads is the first sweatshop-free multi-brand sustainable American-made clothing store and custom print business that feeds Americans in need from each garment sold.
