Introducing ‘RECYCLED CLOTHES’… an environment friendly initiative by Kanika Kadam.
What comes to mind when you think of recycled clothes? Definitely not this gorgeous red dress!
We thought it was time to change how people think of recycled clothes. Recycled clothes can be beautiful. All you need is some of your old clothes and turn them into pretty fashionable items. I am sure quite a lot of you have cupboards full of old dupattas and clothes, slightly torn tank tops, clothes that bore you now or some favourite clothes that are too small now but you just can’t throw away. Most of us throw away and waste a lot of these clothes and keep buying new ones. Most of these end up in landfills and contribute towards polluting the environment.
What if there was a way to redeem and recycle these clothes? Do a bit for our environment? This was the idea behind starting ‘Recycled Clothes’ initiative. Legally Sewed is doing its bit for the environment by starting ‘Recycled Clothes… an environment friendly initiative’. We have been and will be making lovely and interesting clothes from old clothes. We thought this was one of the best ways to showcase our designs as well. The lovely red/maroon dress you see is one such recycled clothing under this initiative. It has been made only using my mom’s old dupattas! When recycled clothes can look this awesome, why won’t anyone want them!?
Now, are you ready to do your bit for the environment? Even if you don’t care about the environment too much, don’t you want to preserve that favourite dress of yours? Does it hold too much sentimental value? Use parts of the old cloth, combine it with some new cloth and make a new favourite. There are limitless possibilities to what you can make with your old clothes! We will keep posting the outfits made from old clothes to inspire you and share some great ideas for you!
So here’s what you can do to be a part of this initiative. If you would like to make something out of your old clothes, send us a picture of the cloth, the approx. size of the cloth, type of fabric etc. and we can brainstorm the possibilities with you. We understand that some of you may feel you do not have the skill or the time to recycle your own clothes (creatively challenged and too busy as they say) so if you live in Delhi, you can send us the cloth and we can recycle it for you by turning it into a pretty piece for you to wear at a reasonable charge for the designing and stitching. Sounds great, right?
Ofcourse just like our other designs, the designs we put up under our ‘Recycled Clothes’ initiative can be ordered in different prints/colours to be made out of new cloth.
For orders, enquiries or feedback, please e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
