Zero Waste Products by FABRIC

Zero Waste Bag

This zero-waste bag is a simple rectangle, leaving no fabric scraps. Its straightforward construction (two outer seams) allows quick and affordable construction. The rectangle shape is the perfect canvas for artwork and customization.

BEHIND THE ARTWORK:
A statement about the unsustainability of denim jeans

The production of denim and jeans is notoriously unsustainable, primarily due to its excessive water consumption. Astonishingly, it takes about 7,500 liters of water—equivalent to an entire swimming pool—to manufacture just a single pair of jeans. This immense water usage stems from the cultivation of water-intensive cotton and the extensive washing and dyeing processes involved. Additionally, denim production often involves harmful chemicals that can pollute water sources, further exacerbating its environmental impact. As a result, the fashion industry's reliance on denim significantly contributes to water scarcity and environmental degradation, highlighting the urgent need for more sustainable practices.

BEHIND THE ARTWORK:
A statement about appreciation for the skill and work required to create a sewn product

The fashion industry has become increasingly unsustainable due to the shift towards mass production in overseas factories, often operating without stringent regulations. This has led to unethical labor practices and significant environmental degradation. The industry's reliance on "fast fashion" promotes the notion of clothing as a disposable commodity, encouraging a cycle of constant consumption and waste. To foster sustainability, it is crucial to rethink fashion as a durable and valuable product, emphasizing quality, ethical production, and environmental responsibility and appreciating the intense skill and labor that goes into every sewn product item.

BEHIND THE ARTWORK:
A statement about single-use plastic

One-time-use plastic bags are extraordinarily wasteful, with billions used annually worldwide. In the United States alone, an estimated 100 billion plastic bags are used each year, with only a small fraction being recycled. The majority end up in landfills, contributing significantly to environmental pollution. It is reported that approximately 12 million barrels of oil are required to produce the plastic bags used in the U.S. annually. In landfills, these bags can take hundreds of years to decompose, releasing harmful toxins into the soil and water. Furthermore, their lightweight nature means they easily escape into the environment, causing harm to wildlife and marine life that mistake them for food.

BEHIND THE ARTWORK:
A statement about global warming

Global warming, a long-term rise in Earth's average temperature primarily due to human activities like burning fossil fuels and deforestation, poses significant challenges to various industries, including fashion. The fashion industry is both a contributor to and a victim of global warming. As a major polluter, it generates substantial greenhouse gas emissions through production, transportation, and waste. Furthermore, climate change impacts the availability and quality of natural fibers like cotton and wool, and disrupts supply chains due to extreme weather events. This interconnection necessitates a shift towards sustainable practices, such as using eco-friendly materials, reducing carbon footprints, and promoting circular fashion to mitigate the industry's environmental impact.

BEHIND THE ARTWORK:
A statement about celebrating sustainable fashion

FABRIC Incubator's Eco Fashion Week is an annual event promoting sustainability in fashion. It features runway shows, workshops, and panels to showcase eco-friendly designs and practices. The event fosters collaboration and raises awareness about the environmental impact of the fashion industry, driving positive change towards a greener future.

Behind the Zero Waste Collection:

At FABRIC Incubator, we’ve created zero-waste products from the leftover materials we used to manufacture 800K reusable medical gowns during the COVID-19 pandemic. This leftover material is what is referred to as deadstock in the industry. The edge of the fabric can be left raw so it's the perfect fabric for zero-waste patterns as well (2D square pattern folds into 3D design).

Each bag features unique artwork printed in on-demand batches with the eco-friendly Kornit Presto printer, which uses water-based inks and a direct-to-fabric system, reducing water consumption and pollution.

Our project repurposes materials, raises awareness about unsustainable fashion practices, and demonstrates the viability of sustainable, customized, on-demand manufacturing.
