Meet The Designers
we have been trying to work them into new textiles, so that for each collection we have several pieces made using the waste of the last collections - trying to close the loop....
That’s so helpful, thank you
Great idea @phoebe !
Fabscrap - they are an NYC based company. https://fabscrap.org
Thanks Christina. Love what Fabscrap are doing, does anyone know if there are other initiatives like this near them? Anyone want to start one?
I am a student, I take the majority of my textile scraps home with me then pass them onto my local second hand store for crafting etc.
We collaborate and work with textile scraps from other studios, garment factories, hotels etc. and upcycle that into new textiles or end products depending on the project. In the process of upcycling we utilize crafts and knowledge indigenous to India. We are called IRO IRO (@iroirozerowaste). :)
Love your work @Bhaavya Goenka , really good use of cutting room waste.
@Emily Sear Fashion Revolution Thank you :)
All credits to the upcyclists before us for building the much-needed sensitivity in the system and in us :D
an other thing you can do with the really little scraps is to make padding for cushions, and with the bigger ones the cover of it. Of course you have to balance, following the type of scrap you have, the type of shape you can made out of it. Once we had a lot of woollen scraps, from a local knitwear factory, pure merino. we manually cutted them into little pieces to have a comfortable and washable padding and we made wonderful patchwork cushions! @wastecommunity on facebook.
They look great
thank you Margot!
