Britta Tan graduated in Fashion Design at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, Arnhem in 2010. Together with Fred Farrow, she founded the fashion label Fredfarrowbrittavelontan, which focuses on developing sustainable ways to create new materials using traditional crafts.
Accidental Accumulative Outcome emerged from a process of experimenting and working with time-consuming handcrafts such as shibori, batik, hand printing, and knotting. The resulting series of garments are made using natural dyes and eco-friendly fabrics and are intended to express the studio’s philosophy that clothing should not be a disposable product.
FredfarrowBrittavelontan rework, combine, and collage fabrics. The designers believe there is more than one ideal outcome, and experiments should not be discarded but rather saved and reworked.
