Zero-Waste Denim: The Wave of the Future

Parsons The New School For Design has teamed up with Loomstate to showcase a collaboration to create zero-waste denim fashions February 8-23, 2011 at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons.

Through Parsons collaboration with  Loomstate, Rogan Gregory and Scott Mackinlay Hahn’s eco-friendly label, they will produce one of the Parsons student-designed looks as part of their Fall 2011 collection. The selected look will be announced at the opening reception.

What a great concept.  Loomstate uses organic cotton from the United States, Turkey, Peru, India and parts of Africa to adhere to the company’s code of conduct and must use the highest environmental and labor standards, controlling factory pollution, and enforcing fair labor as the cornerstone of the effort.

The thought of zero-waste clothing is an incredible thing.  Personally, I think of the Dane Cook joke about his father’s robe being made of wheat when I hear someone discussing zero-waste denim, but this has to be one of the coolest sustainable projects I’ve heard of to date.
