Hong Kong Design Institute
The Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) is a leading design education institution in Hong Kong under the VTC group providing quality education that cultivates knowledge, professionalism and new talents for the evolving creative industries.
In early 2012, students of the Department of Fashion Design and Brand Strategy of HKDI, in collaboration with the service users of Salvation Army Shaukiwan Day Activity Centre and St. James’ Settlement Rehabilitation Service Centre, have developed a series of “Positive Hong Kong” products with textile waste for rwb330, in order to encourage Hong Kong people to stay positive and perseverant in our daily lives.

“I support you” Cup Mat
“You are good”, “You are great”, “Support you always”, “Able to endure”, “You are smart”, “I am good”, “I am superb”, “I support you”, “You support me”…
Positive energy is needed in Hong Kong. Word on the embroidery cup mat can transform into encouraging messages. Such messages remind Hong Kong people that we are able to withstand hardship and turn it to success with perseverance and determination.
Decorated with embroidery word of HKDI’s students, together with different stitching patterns by the service users of St. James’ Settlement Rehabilitation Service Centre, the Cup Mat series is their concerted effort for boosting a Positive Hong Kong.

“Spend Our Youth As Much As We Want” Denim Flowers
There’s a saying that goes, “Don’t waste the youth as it will not stay”. However, we can spend our youth as much as we want so long as we spend it meaningfully, such as making denim flowers with the service users of Salvation Army Shaukiwan Day Activity Centre.
