Zero Waste Daniel: Designing Out Pre-consumer Textile Waste
Pre-consumer textile waste poses a major concern, as raw materials that are used in the production of the textile are lost, meaning that they have been extracted for nothing, not to mention the possibilities of any negative externalities that go along during the production stages. Zero Waste Daniel collects pre-consumer waste through sample factories, production studios, and partnership with brands and non-profits. It then uses the collected 'waste' to make its garment and accessories collection. Together with its ReRoll™ production technique, each piece diverts around one pound of textile waste from the landfill and is unique from any other pieces.
