Sewing with Mango Seeds

20th August 2021

There really is no limit to the kinds of materials one can use for sewing. But it takes a talented teenager to look at a humble mango seed and see in it the makings of a stunning ball gown.

Jessica Collins had worked for a time on a mango farm and was dismayed by all the waste she saw there. So, over a period of 4 months she carefully collected, cleaned and dried mango seeds and sewed them onto the skirt of her design.

Jessica hopes that her creation can remind people of the incredible things that can be done with items usually discarded as waste. It just takes time, patience and a whole lot of creativity, which Jessica clearly has.
