Textile Upcycled Product of the Week
We’re upcycling textile offcuts to produce ecoDesigned Fabrics that can now be used to sew new dresses.
At @ecodesigns, we are collecting textile offcuts from Tailors and Fashion designers around the city of Bamenda and repurposing them to create amazing products such as the #ecoDesigned Fabric that you can see above.
The steps involved in the production of our ecodesigned Laptop Bags include;
1. Collection of the textile offucts
2. Shaping and Sizing the textile offcuts to be of same sizes
3. Sewing the offcuts together to produce the #ecodesigned fabric. Once we have the #ecodesigned fabric made, we can now use it to sew our #ecodesigned garments.
4. Design, cut and sew the #ecodesigned garment or ecodesigned product of your choice and size.
Some ecodesigned garments we have made from the ecoDesigned Fabric include;
Some of our #ecodesigned garments produced can be seen below.
