The Offcut Company
The Offcut Company
At KAPDAA, we work with progressive designers and artists (like you!) to turn your beautiful offcuts into bespoke, unique, and sustainable products such as Notebooks, Journals, Tote bags, Sunglass Cases and many more, which can be sold as limited editions, gifted as customer purchase products, used for marketing / PR or at trade shows which reflect their commitment to sustainability. This gives fabric waste a new lease of life, and over the past 3 years we have saved over 10,000 meters of fabric from going to landfill. We have collaborated with over 300 brands and designers such as Selfridges, DAKS, Morris & Co, Little Greene, Altfield, Raeburn, National Portrait Gallery to name a few as we seek to create a global wave of sustainable change, one gorgeous, eco-friendly product at a time.
What is an offcut?
Ever wondered what happens to all the fabric leftover after your favorite piece of clothing is made, or for that matter end of rolls, or misprints, or fabric hangers, or sample designs etc.? We call this fabric waste ‘offcuts’, and every second, a truck dumps up to 10 cubic meters of this fabric waste into a landfill. You can only imagine the ecological toll of this wastefulness.
At KAPDAA, we believe there is a better way to look good and save the planet while we’re at it. We creatively repurpose this off-cast textile to create one-off, handmade products that make a fashion statement, sustainably.
