Piece x Piece creates women’s clothing and homeware from discarded fabric samples recovered from fashion studios. Each piece is original, handmade, and sewn in small quantities.
Piece x Piece was established in response to the swathes of fabric waste produced by the fashion industry. They estimate that the average design house is responsible for around 4,500 fabric swatches – the fabric samples used by designers to inspire their clothes – per year.
The fabric used in each piece is selected from an ever-changing stock of luxury discards, so designs vary depending on what samples are available. This dynamic process creates unique, high quality products.
Why you should care
Fabric swatches are a key part of the design and fashion industry, but are also not being used to their full potential. The majority end up in landfill, but Piece x Piece reclaim them before experimenting and redesigning new garments and home fabrics.
