Over the last two years designers Sarmite Polakova and Mara Berzina have researched colour separated post-consumer fibres. In a collaborative project with Riga Technical University, the designers dived into the depths of a single colour – yellow - and translating it into a marble-like colour palette. Waste does not have a single tone. Instead it mesmerizes with depths and patterns that create a complexity visible once looked closer at. Pre-Loved creates an alternative to the flawed traditional textile recycling. A unique production method turns inferior mixed blends into a sturdy bio-textile suitable for fashion, interior and product design applications. The lightweight leather-like material reveals new aesthetics and highlights the previous lives of each worn garment through colour and structural nuances. Pre-Loved is part of a larger project investigating various waste streams from the textile industry. Post-consumer garments, production waste, fibres, dust and even dye waste are seen as a resource for the creation of new material concepts.
