In conjunction with the Sukriti Skill Development Centre (an initiative by Udayan Care), I worked to create garments using zero-waste pattern cutting methods. We were able to create commercially viable garments using a sustainable method by solving problems such as pattern placement, fit and construction, whilst also considering the beginners skill level of the women working in the centre.
The idea of zero-waste design is to make sure there is no or very little textile waste. The fabric is cut so that patterns fit together like a puzzle or the fabric is manipulated, to allow shape and functionality.
All garments use a zero-waste design, all of them constructed by Sukriti Development Centre using fabric remnants donated by designers and alike.
