WEAVE ( K)NOT WASTE

WHAT
Handwoven fabrics that suggest what could be woven in the future by the fashion industry to eliminate waste.

WHY
It is impossible to ignore the problem of waste within the fashion industry. Sarah Brunnhuber set out to create a minimal-waste garment production technique. She tackled the issue at production level by changing the way fabrics are developed.

HOW
By weaving pattern shapes directly, Sarah eliminated cutting waste, and by knotting each piece together she eliminated sewing waste. The knots represent the handcraft that is missing in industrially made garments today, while also drawing attention to the need for a mentality change.

QUOTE
Celebrating the way clothes are made and visualising the production method.
