COLD WASH is an ongoing project by Matty Hofstede, currently focussed on celebrating the uncelebrated within fashion and its industry.

Born from nescience and curiosity, COLD WASH is to spread theoretical/practical information and knowledge about the fashion industry through a materialised design medium.


The interest for technological advancements and sustainability is presented through the main use of a laser machine. This process is used by COLD WASH to create graphics without having to rely on environmentally polluting methods like screen printing.
