Much has been said about the huge amount of waste generated by the fashion industry for our love of what is trendy and beautiful.

What do we do about the situation? How do we do our part to address fashion waste?

 

Painted Threads 2020

 

Our answer – LOOMS Painted Threads textile.

It features designs formed with yarn unraveled from fashion waste – fabric off-cuts too small to be used, rescued from tailors’ cutting tables. Our women artisans create artwork with these threads, encased in fused post-consumer bubble wrap waste, and celebrate the rebirth of end-of-life materials into new ones.

The Painted Threads collection is more than fashion to us. It is a statement about the positive impact we can collectively make today for a fashionably sustainable tomorrow.

We’d love to hear about your ways to combat fashion waste.

We are also constantly working to do things better so do subscribe to our quarterly newsletter and be kept updated.

 

Cheers!
