Garment Industry Revolution
Garment production leaves heaps of scraps and dead-stock fabrics in landfill every year. In order to cut down the waste, we have launched several projects revolving around leftover fabrics. In 2017, we set up a textile bank with Industrial Technology Research Institute to gather all the leftover fabric resources, providing the fabrics at a lower price to young designers, and held hundreds of workshops teaching people how to rescue the fabrics and unwanted clothes from landfill to their closet.
