Recycling & Upcycling Fashion Industry's Waste

We create accessories and clothing by just using industry's waste. Our collections depends on what "waste" we find. We don't source anything new and we source everything locally. We use fabrics and garments that are at least 80% natural, so we don't contribute to micro-plastic pollution in our oceans.

The materials we use MUST be from one of the following categories:

OFFCUTS OR PRODUCTION WASTE: textile scraps generated during garment manufacturing. It is considered waste and is discarded due to its uneven and small formats; Used for Hair Accessories & Face Masks.
END OF ROLLS (REMNANTS): are factory surplus textiles that have been left over from garment manufacturing; Used for Hair Accessories & Face Masks.
DAMAGED TEXTILES: are unused textiles that have been damaged for example with colour or print defects, rendering them unusable; Used for Accessories and Clothing.
DEADSTOCK FABRICS: are textiles that factories or designers deem as no longer needed after producing a collection and might be destined to landfill; Used for Accessories and Clothing.
UNSOLD CLOTHING WASTE: refer to the inventory that doesn't sell and doesn't have a high likelihood of selling in the future and might be destined to landfill. We recycle this waste on behalf of fashion brands, like Lois Hazel and Nique.

MANUFACTURING

We produce small, capsule collections, using local seamstresses that are free to work from home and are granted a fair pay and treatment. We mainly make to order without delay for the customer. If a style doesn't sell well we don't produce it so we can re-use the fabric for other products/collections.
