tHERAPY Recycle and Exorcise is a gender-free, season-free and trends-free upcycling fashion project based in Berlin and Córdoba, Argentina, run by the two sisters Paula and Mariángeles Aguirre since 2012.
In a constant search for discarded or used materials (pre- and post-consumer waste), tHERAPY designs small capsule collections that are created by mixing and combining materials and using techniques to re-functionalise them.
Every piece is handcrafted with a zero-waste philosophy to give the pieces the longest possible life and broad adaptability, following a multi-function and multi-size concept. The ideas come from the materials, their possibilities and their flaws, which make them the main source of inspiration. The creations and aesthetics are inspired by subcultures and alternative lifestyles as a form of critique of a hegemonic, exclusionary and heteronormative system.
