Ipse Ipsa Ipsum – Sustainable Luxe
Sustainable Luxe Collection
As a brand that celebrates the beauty of natural materials, ipse ipsa ipsum is invested in finding a balance between production and preservation. In 2020, the Singaporean brand launched its Sustainable Luxe collection as an effort to further reduce output, as well as to challenge conventional ideas of what waste can be.
Using brass and leather offcuts, the distinctive geometric pattern of the collection repurposes materials that have been leftover from the production line. Heavily influenced by the Art Deco style, the intention was to juxtapose the leftover material with the opulence of the roaring twenties.
While leather has long been a controversial topic in the area of sustainability, it can actually be a sustainable practice in that it uses every part of the animal to dress products that were built to last. However, the tannins used to treat leather can actually be toxic to the environment. Instead, ipse ipsa ipsum has opted for a natural vegetable dye as an eco-friendly alternative.
