Donate for Innovation
We require 200kgs of garment / textile fashion waste to test our innovative concept test. Would like to request all local residents, environmental groups, charity shops to donate any clothing items they don’t need.
KAPDAA - The Offcut Company, is a small sustainable business based in Kingston Upon Thames. Over the past 3 years we have saved more than 10,000 meters of fabric going to landfill by creating sustainable unique accessories & stationery by collaborating with more than 300 fashion/interior designers, mills like Holland & Sherry, Selfridges, MET Museum, Alice & Olivia, Roland Mouret, Mary Katrantzou, Raeburn, DAKS London, Little Green, Morris & Co. Including cross sector collaborations with pram company Bugaboo, Caviar House & Prunier, shoe company in LA and many more. Over Christmas we had a Pop up shop in Kingston Town centre offering products created from fabric waste which was a success and locals loved it.
We are doing a large scale test of our concept outside the lab with Royal Borough of Kingston & Kingston University who have supported us in our research to recycle old garments more efficiently within the borough.
If our initial tests are successful we would take a significant step towards reducing our unwanted clothing more sustainably.
