Sustainable fashion supports and nourishes our earth governed by the principles of organic fibres, recycling, free trade and animal welfare.

Once the purpose of various materials is served, instead of dumping them in the garbage or landfills ate now recycled in to various products, including new apparels.

Tapes from old and worn out audio cassettes are recycled and are used for making neckties.

Currently, there is an increasing awareness among people regarding waste collection and recycling. Developing a potential market for such recycled textiles by buying such recycled products will reduce the wastage going to landfills.
