offcut (re)visioning process
– rescue –
During the cutting process of garment production a lot of fabric is discarded that is not required in the pattern of the garment being made. These pieces of fabric are called offcuts.
We carefully salvage the offcuts by hand from factories in London, meticulously sorting them and rescuing them from going directly to landfill or incineration.
– design –
We design around what we discover, when we discover it and where we discover it.
– prototype –
– make –
All of the labelling is also sourced from offcuts and hand crafted.
Even the card used to make our boxes is sourced from cardboard mills in the UK.
We are keeping it local to limit our impact.
All our packaging can be reused and 100% recycled.
Reusing your packaging will ensure the maximum life-span of the original materials.
– transport –
Your orders are hand delivered by us on foot or two wheels to the local post office, we do our best to keep our carbon emissions to a minimum. For the rest of the journey from the post office to your door where other means of transport are necessary we offset the carbon emissions making our delivery carbon neutral.
We are serious about limiting our impact on the environment in the best way we can. If you live locally and prefer to pick up your order in person in London Fields please feel free to get in touch with us and we can arrange this.
