Convertibles - Clothes That Kids Can Make, invites children between 4 and 12 years to get involved in making their own clothes.

Convertibles are wearable puzzles, which a child playfully assembles together using a tactile tool kit whilst learning life skills; dexterity and creative thinking as well as an understanding for clothing care, repair and re-use. The Convertibles celebrates traditional craft skills, an infinite life cycle of products and participatory design.

This project has been longlisted in the wearable design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
