We know that not everything is perfect...
But to Chris Wilde those flaws and imperfections are what makes things unique. Taking something and making it more than what it is by embellishing those flaws is what Wilde is about. Having those flaws makes his art one of a kind, non-generic, but unique and special. More than anything Wilde aims to reduce the amount of wasteful dumping of fabrics in our landfills by repurposing fabrics and materials. His inspirations comes from his late grandfather, Rafael Ortega Polo who was always wearing his favorite brown cowboy hat, leather wrist straps, and a pair of cowboy boots like a true Colombian cowboy.
