The founder's intention has always been to combine sustainability and practicality with fashion by providing fashion brands and fabric producers with stock & waste management solutions in order to do his part to reduce pollution and help overall circular economy in the textile industry.
The fabrics we offer at WASTED Atelier are not simply deadstock. We consider them to be sleeping beauties, because they have taken time to make, used up hundreds of thousands of litres of water, involved thousands of people, have been transported across the world. Sometimes they have even been created, designed and developed especially for unique garments. We believe these raw materials deserve more respect and should be valued correctly. We want to valuate all the effort that has gone into making them. Through reverse logistics, we are creating value and you give high end textiles a second life.
By choosing our fabrics you are choosing to be part of the bigger picture. You are helping us to communicate a strong message through your creative projects. That’s why we opened up this source to everyone and we don’t only use these fabrics for our brand. You are reducing pollution and generating income for small struggling brands to survive, you are directly creating employment. You are investing in the future of our environment making you a wonderful citizen of the world and we thank you for that.
