Offcut One 
Overview


Offcut One is a celebration of discarded materials, translated into a clothing collection.  Isabel has used a variety of British wool, hemp, linen and bamboo, as well as making bespoke buttons from Parblex by Chip[S]Board.  Using these sustainable and organic materials, the collection explores colours and bold shapes seen in the layering of waste materials in a workshop.

The ethos of this project is to make people see offcuts not as waste, but as potential for further design.  Isabel wants people to respect the materials they use, and consider what happens to them once they have been discarded. 
Isabel believes we have to aim to maximize the materials we use in order to do justice to where they came from.  Things have become far too convenient and easy, so we now need to challenge ourselves by using recourses more stringently.
