Matter Loci x Matter Globalis (ML x MG) is a fashion lab, a traveling exhibition and a living open archive. Through an open call, we asked local makers to produce a series of garments that explore and present local resources − in term of materials, creativity and production. The first open call focused on Slovenian wool as rare local material. The resulting archive documents both the products and processes involved in their realization. From amateur to professional, local traditions to global experimentation, ML x MG grows through the contributions of participants in the fashion system. ML x MG aims to generate new perspectives and real alternatives to the delocalized, contemporary system of fashion production and consumption.
