The >self_passage< methods are practical applications of democratic-productive consciousness and empowerment saving the dying garments in the back of the wardrobe. The methods are cookbooks for reclaiming the skills and modes of production of fashion to short circuiting the flows of myth through the fashion system.
The methods in this recyclopedia should preferably be seen as a collection and be read through emancipatory and micro-political glasses rather than environmental ones. They are a contribution to the critical discussion concerning the interpassive system of contemporary consumerism. They are step-by-step paths encouraging inspirational skill.

In your skillful hands the sewingmachine is a tool for liberation!
