Upcycling Cloth Waste into High Fashion through Traditional Indian Handloom

  July 22, 2021

Large textile hubs in the country can produce up to 45,000 meters of fabric waste on a daily basis. But, in the middle of this chaos, a Delhi-based design house is playing a small and significant role in fighting this sea of textile waste. Ashita Singhal, a Delhi-based designer didn’t want to be part of this existing problem. Instead, she offered a much more refined solution and that too by using the traditional handloom method of India. Ashita’s Paiwand studio has 9 in-house looms and has partnered with over 35 designers, in an attempt to form collaborations that do well with waste. She has managed more than 3,000 kg of textile waste from going into the landfill sites.
