The background is earth and human beings current situation which needs to be changed in order to create a sustainable living. This is understood in the ecological, sociocultural and economical sustainable model and contextualixed for agricultural workwear. The issue of construction methods in workwear is examined and understood in relationship to the non-rationale and aesthetical function; the need to work and the need to dwell. New ideas of rationale function workwear is proposed which argues for the need of a greater look upon sustainability and non-rationale ideas within the field of current workwear. This includes: 1. Construction methods for a. Greater movement, b. Fewer stretch points within garments and c. Advanced vs. simplicity. 2. Aesthetic forms exploring a. Aesthetic as sustainable, b.The two natures of working and dwelling spoken is terms of construction and empty space, c. Different cultures of old and new. 3. Material: a. sustainable raw fibers as organic Hemp and Cotton b. Second hand material as deadstock, surplus and waste, c. Performing materials for different occasions 4.Colour and structure: a. Bio-organic natural Indigo dyeing vats, b. Dyeing with natural dyes as Madder, Brazil Wood and Acorns on cellulose based material, c. D.I.Y coating with Beewax, Flax Oil and Parafine, d. The spectrum of new/clean and patina of age/worn. which all are used as expressive research tools to understand different perspectives of sustainable function for another workwear within a culture shift; the background of the past, the beauty of life and finally proposals for a future seen as the ecological age.
