Sustainability is not just about our environment, it is about our society. As someone coming from a family of poor means, working with a charity organization like Pitchon Lev was the first thing that came up to my mind. The organization receives large amounts of donated clothes for sale, with that income it purchases food supplies for families in need. Unsold items get shredded, quickly finding their way to the garbage, polluting pur environment. As a designer and an entrepreneur The huge amounts of fabrics inspired me. I reached out to Pitchon Lev and together we developed a unique platform incorporating a fashion designer to take sustainability to a whole new level. This is how it works -
A. Pitchin Lev provides the designer with bags of clothes.
B. Inspired by the shredding process the clothes are being sorted and cut into strips of equal width.
C. The designer reassembles the strips according to a specific sewing pattern, maintaining a Zero Waste policy.
