Talk about waste

We have participated in #thebeachcleanupjakarta last weekend and it truly is a learning experience. It is encouraging to know that our effort to upcycle (a small fraction) fabric waste is not futile.

Our main occupation is to upcycle fabric offcuts from local fashion makers. This week, 7 bags of fabric offcuts were collected from our donor to be aesthetically upcycled and eventually made into products that will go back on the shelves. Our sincerest thanks to our donators from as far as Banjarmasin (@srihidayah368), Surabaya, Jogja (@lemarilila), Purbalingga and Jakarta area (@x_sml @puranaindonesia @morphcoffee) for being a part of our upcycling effort.

Imperfections, stitched with good intentions

We thank our local fashion labels (X) S.M.L, Purana and garment makers for not wasting their offcuts.

Why do we need to buy new materials when the existing ones are still reusable and in abundance? Let’s rethink how we use our materials. We are not the expert in upcycling fabric waste, but we want to do it.
