WE THE WATER by: Jenifer Redsky

Inspired by her love for the water Redsky’s work aims at addressing the consumption of water in the fashion industry. Her designs weave the story of her life and her people into each design and are love letters to the places she loves and the people she loves.
Her work aims to promote sustainable practices in garment creation and manufacturing to protect the water for the next seven generations and beyond.

Redsky is a water protector, designer, artist, maker, and mender who works through the medium of fashion. In response to the environmental epidemic of the textile industry, she designs wearable art that is sustainable, unisex, accessible, and rejects mirco trends.

Redsky’ four guiding principles in her design are; Repurposed X Reworked X Upcycled X Recycled
