About the Project
With the purpose of demonstrating how math is the foundation of fashion, the Elimindi design team is working with Girls Inc.
Working together with Nate's Honor Animal Rescue, custom fit blankets are made for the Kuranda beds used at the shelter for the cats and dogs. Placing a fleece blanket on top of the bed will keep the pets warm in the winter.
The girls learn about the "Math of Making" fabric based items. Starting with a Kuranda bed, the girls take measurements, design patterns and develop the best layout to optimize fabric yield.
They learn the hands on skills to cut and finish the blankets. The girls will deliver the blankets to the Nate's pets themselves and will see how their efforts have a positive impact on the quality of life of the animals in the shelter.
