Ahuacatl is the first apparel collection of Fragmentario. Made in New York using surplus silks and linens and dyed using avocado seeds provided by local restaurants.

It borrows its name from the word for avocado used by Aztecs in México before the colonization of the Americas. It was transformed into “aguacate” by the Spanish colonizers and then evolved into the English word “avocado”.

Ahuacatl seeks to explore the opportunities of circular economies by using alternative production methods and to activate conversations about waste in the food and textile industries.
