Post consumer waste

Brown, Sandra (2013) Post consumer waste. Textile Toolbox,


Reuse of post consumer waste is probably the best-known type of upcycling when it comes to garments and materials, yet it is simultaneously one of the most challenging, when it comes to taking it to scale. There are obvious challenges when working with post consumer garments, each one different in terms of style, size, color, and fabric, requiring individual creative responses to individual creative challenges. The requirement of unique innovative material responses lends itself to artistic solutions, so it is no surprise that the area of upcycling used garments, is dominated by small, independent designers.
