Waste is a dirty word. But if we examine the same idea from a different light, smart waste within the fashion industry can be transformed into something new to create an exclusive desire.
Yellow108, a Los Angeles based headwear company, specializes in hats and sunglasses all made from salvaged materials – fabric that otherwise would be thrown out. The company collects fabric waste from eco-textile mills to create gorgeous Limited Edition hats. Their unique advantage to a limited fabric source doubles as the opportunity to create smaller collections – making pieces more one of a kind – while at the same time reverts waste from landfills.
Topping this week’s Weekly Want is Yellow108’s versatile Sofia hat.
