Create accessories from leftover fabric
The Finisterre Fabric Use-Up Project was founded to solve the problem of unused quality fabric left over from recycled insulation, and most recently waterproof jackets. By repurposing this material, they designed a range of accessories, including wallets, wash bags, hats and totes (to replace plastic bags).
The fashion industry produces an estimated 40 billion square meters of leftover textile per year.Source
- Utilises waste materials that could end up in landfill or the environment
- Promotes waste reduction across the clothing industry
- All leftover scraps used in the Fabric Use-Up Project are 100% recycled polyester or merino wool
- Saves money
- Every product manufactured still has its own environmental footprint
Making a difference
In 2020, Finisterre donated over 500 meters of leftover fabric to Cornwall Scrubs to help produce items for the NHS.
