THE OFFCUT STORY
At Kapdaa every piece matters. We work with fashion and interior designers, textile weavers, mills, and many more to make sure their beautiful and precious fabrics and other materials do not go to waste. By turning their offcuts, end of rolls, and other excess materials into unique and sustainable branded products – notebooks, eye masks, luggage tags, passport holders and many more – we give a new lease of life to production offcuts for our customers.
Over the past 2.5 years we reused over 5000 metres of fabric offcuts – saving them from going to landfill straight away. We have created thousands of new products out of already existing fabric along the way. It takes approximately 270 litres of water to produce the cotton for one fabric-covered notebook. KAPDAA, however, repurposing that already existing material to produce new products helps decrease the huge energy and water footprint left by the fashion and textile industries.
Kapdaa works with over 250 brands to create beautiful and sustainable products out of their unused material. Our “offcut suppliers” range from mills in Scotland, to interior designers from New York to fashion designers in Russia. We also work with London and LA based shoemakers, Parisian weavers, Belgian pram manufacturers, and tailors at Savile Row. The list does not stop there, and we are always looking to bring new designers on board to help us spread the sustainable message and create a zero waste industry.
