Artists turn burlap coffee bags into fashion
05:00 AM, Aug 21, 2013
Want to see how burlap coffee bags can be transformed into fashion? Then stop in at Joe Bean Coffee Roasters from 6 to 10 p.m. Sept. 6 to see the opening gallery reception of The Single Origin or S.O. Project.
The project, a collaboration with the Greentopia Festival, Thread and Joe Bean Coffee Roasters, has about 40 artists design men’s or women’s fashion or jewelry from about 100 single origin burlap coffee bags. The evening will include judging of the pieces and photographs of the fashions by Greg Hollar.
Selected S.O. Project pieces will then be displayed at Greentopia’s Ecofest.
Joe Bean is at 1344 University Ave.
