Process Gallery: Maison Margiela by John Galliano

published on 31 December 2020

Study the making process for transforming second-hand fabrics into a Maison Margiela Recicla jumper, and create your very own unique balls of yarn ready to knit and assemble.

Galliano's upcycled crew-neck sweater is made from 13 cotton poplin shirts, found in thrift shops. The striped and plain shirts are ripped vertically to create ribbons with a width of approximately 1- 2cm, before the ribbons are joined to form a ball of yarn, then knitted, creating a textured play of white, blue and dust rose. The piece is knitted and assembled by hand. Follow the pattern and instructions to make yours.
