The working method of Jelske Peterson and Jarah Stoop has quite a lot going for it. Used shoes are thoroughly cleaned, taken apart, re-read and fitted with new soles. By producing ethical footwear, Peterson Stoop wants to steer the industry toward a more sustainable future. At the same time, it provides insight into shoe reuse and care.
During this project, the duo will choose a shoe from the existing museum collection that inspires them. The next step is to apply the PetersonStoop identity and making method to it: pairing sustainability, reuse and classic shoemaking techniques with a new vision. The project primarily uses the stitchdown, tub soles and other stitching machines in the Make Labs.
Jelske and Sarah worked in the LABS on: July 6, 7, 13 and 20
