zero waste design

yep, this anorac can be produced without any waste. designer Andria Crescioni, a graduate of Parsons The New School for Design, took the width of the fabric as a starting point and re-thought the pattern of this one-size-fits-most anorac so as to use all the material (100% wool, by the way), without leftovers.

Loomstate undertook to produce the garment and it retails at 345 USD.

Makes me think of that old idea I had of taking a pair of discarded jeans and consume it for various projects to the last scrap. I think I've done that with a pair of jeans already without documenting the process: in the course of three years, 1 pair of jeans = two soft toys and a kindle cover. Perhaps it's time for a new cycle. Especially since I have old jeans galore, a new teddy bear pattern, and a couple of grungy ideas.
