Created by Chloé Kim, Susumu is a home and fashion brand based in Seoul. The concept : reuse remains of Dickson awning fabrics from the family business to make their products. By regularly helping her parents, the founder realized that a considerable amount of Orchestra fabrics was thrown away from the workshop where the awnings are assembled.
As a designer, Chloé Kim decided to develop the Susumu concept to recycle unused fabrics and reduce waste.
From this idea, the designer manufactures and sells planters, baskets, bags, picnic tablecloths, an unusual destination for Dickson Orchestra fabrics.
Composed of 100% solution-dyed acrylic, Orchestra fabrics guarantee very good color fastness over time and superior resistance to tearing, water damage and dirt which gives Susumu products essential qualities for their use.
