"It was a huge undertaking, assembled on half a shoestring," Cobb said at the suit's unveiling one recent afternoon at Philadelphia's Institute of Contemporary Art. "Every piece of the suit took three to five pairs of hands to make," Cobb added. "Every garment you wear took three to five pairs of hands to make too, but you don't know whose hands or where."
Local sheep, local spinners, knitted underwear, local brain-tanned buckskin leather for the shoes, the outfit is 92% local. "If we worked on it for a year and a half," Cobb says, "I think we could have eliminated that 8 percent." ::100 Mile Suit via ::Wired
