Hi! I'm Oscar Ruiz-Schmidt, creative director at Obra Gris.

We produce zero-waste transformable clothing using natural fibers in Costa Rica. I started researching zero waste processes during my master studies in Germany and since we started the company, we've addressed sustainability as an absolute responsibility. Our country is famous for it’s biodiversity and I believe that the power of design systems will preserve the earth and move humanity towards balance. We need to lead this change through collaboration and education. In our work the most vital element is the possibility of a better future and this depends on becoming compromised with each other, reviewing our consumption habits and changing whatever needs to change, now.
