3. Company history:
Inspiration to start upcycling business –
For over 10 years now season after season our processes are repeated and refined. When scrap material accumulates – the natural step is to figure out an application for it. The inspiration comes from the process itself and the desire to give value to each and every resource down to the last thread.
4. Upcycling in their words
Our dyeing partner transforms natural materials into wearable colour – they have been committed to the preservation of this indigenous knowledge for more than 20 years. Like us they operate on a zero waste philosophy – all the byproducts are turned into nitrogen rich fertilizer and the water is used for local crops. Recycling is taking a zero waste approach to design and finding smart applications for each material – creating systems that regenerate communities and the environment.
5. Importance of upcycling fashion
It’s important to continuously take stock of what resources are available to us and apply design thinking to find solutions for social and environmental problems. As it stands we are suffering from overconsumption and over production – upcycling and creating from materials that already exists is a remedy to the problem of waste.
6. Process impolyed(sop)
The smallest leftover scraps of fabric from our workshop are converted into archival paper, which is used as packaging material and hang tags. This paper is made via a hand made process turning the scraps into pulp by mixing water and then pressing the pulp into sheets of paper.
