Using dead stock designer fabrics, can be a sustainable option for the fashion industry. The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. A huge amount of clothing is thrown away every year, contributing to waste issues and resource depletion.
Dead stock fabrics, what does that really mean?
Dead stock fabrics are excess fabrics left over after a designer or manufacturer completes their production cycle. The fabrics are then not destroyed, but reused to make new garments, for example.
What are the benefits of using dead stock fabrics?
To reduce the amount of waste in the fashion industry, using dead stock fabrics is a good solution. This not only reduces the impact of the fashion industry on the environment, but can also help reduce the pressure on natural resources needed to produce new fabrics. It also contributes to a circular economy, preserving the value of materials and reducing waste.
