BY SXD. FROM FABRIC TO ZERO WASTE DESIGN.

The kimono is the OG zero waste garment. One bolt of fabric. Minimum cuts. No waste.

Drawing from the original kimono concept, SXD’s first prototypes were built to unleash the power of this beautifully pure idea.

Brilliant minds and technology combined to propel the time-tested philosophy into the now and the future…

An outburst of audacious ideas ensued, giving life to inspired ingredients that have coalesced to form new shapes, new visual languages, and new possibilities.

What remains is an unwavering commitment to generate zero waste and to do right by our planet’s resources.

Our work is the product of looking behind us, inside of us, and ultimately beyond us, to create something that feels familiar yet avant-garde, comforting yet daring, and uncompromisingly sustainable.

Happy Sunday 💚 it makes me so happy to see people looking amazing in our #zerowastedesigns with @limelifebyalcone. Here’s a bit more on how these pieces were made. For these designs, we worked with climate refugees in Bangladesh like Juleka, paying them 2-4 times the local wage to help them rebuild their lives, while ensuring no fabric waste by design. To me, circular economy starts and ends with people. That’s why this work will always have a special place in my heart ☺️ featuring @gingerdglamour @brittanybuschette and @amandashallow in @limelifemerch

My team and I are applying ecorepel to our fabrics for our next project. Basically a environmentally friendly way to repel water through biomimicry of duck’s feathers. 🤓🤓💚 #sustainability #ecorepel #fashiondesign #fabric #designer #technology #designtech #ecofashionblogger ...

Happy weekend! Finally out to photograph some designs after being sick 😷 this is our zero waste design in action, including our new zero waste T-shirt using remnant curtain fabrics🤍 This photo features Melissa Zhang from RockFix. They are providing permanent CO2 sequestration through mine waste to empower the global mining industry to decarbonize at scale 🤯😍🥰
