I use pre-loved natural fibre sweaters (mostly wool and cashmere) that the thrift stores can’t sell (due to holes, stains, etc.) and turn them into one of a kind wrist warmers and other useful items, and keep them out of the landfill so they can enjoy a new life. These wrist warmers will be in my online store this evening.

Adding water buffalo glue finish (a soup mixture of boiled down water buffalo skin) onto indigo-dyed cotton fabric to make it stiffer and heavier. This process turns the soft lightweight cotton into a crisp waxy leather-like textile.

Grain lines - how important really are they anyway 🙃
I originally wanted to make a pinafore with the pair of trousers, turns out they were barely large enough to make a skirt. I had to cut the waist band on a random angle - lots of pins were needed to make sure the curve stayed in place while sewing, but it worked! And isn’t too noticeable 🙈

Nido Collective encourages you to consider who made your homeware and accessories. Know the face of the maker. Be curious about their culture and lifestyle. Be knowledgeable about the technique and craft so you can share their story too. Micaela, is the face behind our rustic Domingo Rugs. She shears, cards, spins and weaves sheep wool using a backstrap loom. This method has remained unchanged for thousand of years. It takes her 8 days to make just one of our rugs. Head to our website to learn more. Link in bio. #nidocollective #purchasewithapurpose

Price tags on garments aren't showing THE TRUE COST of products.
In fact, they are simply totaling conventional business costs.
But calculating the true price means including the cost of negative externalities, which varies a lot according to how the garment was actually produced and as a consequence thereof its environmental footprint.

I had the chance of joining this weeks Talks 'Educators Series' at Hongkongs famous design school @scadhk, a day-long series of lectures and workshops about the importance of sustainable fashion education, where @kering_official
presented its environmental profit & loss account.

The company created an app (My EP&L ☞ available at app stores for free) to make exactly these invisible, environmental impacts (like carbon emissions & water pollution) visible and even better: putting this environmental footprint into numbers!! ✅🌳💰 So far, the first version of the app provides very basic information, but it is already quite fun to create a random product like a jacket and to see how much the choice of fabric or production location are influencing the environmental footprint of it!! 2nd version is about to come 😉 Check it out.
If you do so, I love to hear about your results 😀

Mein Model Paula und ich machen heute einen entspannten halben Arbeitstag im Atelier. Die Aussieht ist so traumhaft. Alles verschneit und durch die großen Fenster kommt viel Licht herein.
Ich setze mich jetzt weiter an die Tencelstirnbänder und bearbeite eure Bestellung. 📸Rejeans Stirnband - hergestellt aus alten Jeans und trotzdem super weich und angenehm.

Miscalculated the length of my warp so had room for one more scarf. Have been waiting to try this banana yarn that I got from @handweavers for ages. It feels like a mix of wool and silk but is totally sustainable and plant based 🌱

Creating magical swatch books of colour is part alchemy part science nerd and part slow-process-slow-down meditation. It takes time to coax colour from nature. I’m still dumbstruck that so many colours can be created from just one plant, rind, nut, seed, insect and leaf. Plants are magic.
