Wabi Scarf | ikat
Every item from our Rebirth Collection is completely unique and a piece of wearable art. Created from 45kg of scrap fabric and hand crafted over 8 months from start to finish by countless skilled hands, Rebirth represents what we consider to be the ultimate in sustainable and luxury fashion.
Rebirth is born from a deep commitment to environmental and social sustainability. Completely crafted from repurposed scrap fabric, each style is cut according to a zero waste pattern.
Our textile waste, collected over many years, has been sorted by fibre and into colour families by our partner, Paiwand Studio. Scraps are then cut into narrow pieces and made into long strips of flat yarn. These are hand woven on a warp of black and white cotton threads according to a meticulously planned colour map.
The pattern which emerges appears organic, but the placement and positioning of every single colour within the weaving grid has been meticulously planned and executed according to the artistic vision of Paiwand Studio.
Our Wabi Scarves are inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi: "a mindset that appreciates humility, simplicity and frugality as routes to tranquility and contentment." (Beth Kempton)
Any variations or irregularities are part of the design and inherent to the production process.
- Eco: all materials are natural and thus bio-degradable. Each item is crafted from between 0.5 - 1 kg of waste fabric, and the clothing patterns are zero-waste.
- Ethical: the entire process from fabric sorting to garment construction is carried out by Paiwand Studio, an ethical manufacturer committed to high environmental and labour standards.
- Women empowerment: handwork by women from highly marginalised communities from the outskirts of Delhi.
