Abstract [en]

The core of the study is embedded in its title, referring to textile waste and apparel. In line with the increased post-consumer waste in our landfills, there are serval ways of targeting sustainable fashion. This work, therefore, aims to focus on handcrafted clothing using mainly low-valued cotton waste, for the creation of textile surfaces. Additionally, with inspiration from the traditional papermaking technique, where textile waste is altered into rag paper, this work wishes to emphasize the process of textile making, adapted in a fashion context. Throughout the study, various mimicking techniques were applied to achieve and imitate the surface expression of rag paper. Besides the mimicking methods, garment archetypes were used as guidelines for finding silhouettes and characteristic details. With archetypes as the catalyst for deciding the shape, the main focus was set on exploring the paperlike material. As result, the final collection showcases both experimental and commercial attributes, highlighting the mimicked material. READY-TO-WASTE suggests possibilities for developing textile surfaces with the use of discarded materials to promote sustainable fashion.
