MEET OUR NEW ZERO WASTE TEXTILE

Made with post-consumer textile waste, our new textile represents renewal, repair, and infinite transformation. Repair should not be a last-ditch effort at extending the life of a garment, it should be the starting point of a cyclical process.

HOW IT'S MADE

Sorting

Old jeans are disassembled into their component parts (front leg, back leg, etc..) to preserve as much material as possible. Buttons, zippers, etc are separated.

Processing

The salvaged material is steamed and carefully chopped into small pieces, about 1 inch squared in size.

Normalizing

The denim is arranged thoughtfully and pressed on top of a fusible interfacing (sourced in Montreal). This normalizes the variability between different types of denim and provides structure to the new material.

Re-enforcement

Once the denim has been fused to the interfacing, it is stitched into place. This adds a decorative finish and additional structure and durability to the material. The stitching pattern is improvised and is different each time
