“I was very struck by the realisation that there is no waste in nature. We must start seeing waste for what it is, which is ‘a resource’. How we can continue our efforts to strive for circular wasteless fashion using creativity and craftsmanship. This is a journey but one that we need to accelerate fast.” - Anya Hindmarch
It is estimated that 92 million tonnes of textile waste is created annually from the fashion industry. Every second, the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or burned globally. The problem of dead stock and waste is enormous. In an effort to reuse what we already have, we created the Patchwork collection.
Each piece of leather is skived down to create a uniform thickness and to ensure the final patchwork is perfectly flat. It is then laser cut and every edge is hand polished. It is then placed onto a panel using water-based glue to create each design.
Due to the intricate nature of the designs it is not possible to sew the patchwork through a programmed machine. Instead a skilled operator has to manually control each stitch from beginning to end.
Continuing to explore how we can achieve less waste in our work and seeing waste for what it is, ‘a resource’, we are launching an exclusive made-to-order bag for a limit time only. This combines our two most important projects: I Am A Plastic Bag and Waste Not, Want Not.
Each tote is made to order using patchwork offcuts of our innovative I Am A Plastic Bag fabric in our favourite colours. This cotton feel fabric is made from used plastic bottles so not only does this tote help to reduce waste by using fabric that otherwise would have been thrown away but also saves bottles from going into landfill. Each bag is finished with the collection's signature 'I Am A Plastic Bag' logo.
