Textile Upcycled Product of the Week


#ecoDesigned Product

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.

I'm always wondering how you manage the scratchy seams inside? Is it a special sewing technique? Or do you line the dresses? So much more we need to know about the clever re-use of textile resources.

We line the inside once we are done but it depends of the purpose for which the fabric was intended. If it was meant to sew a dress, we always line the dress. Besides lining we also use some special sewing techniques for dresses that do not need the lining depending on the desing of the dress. It takes a lot of time and patience but will share more about these in our future posts.
