The unique ‘Zero Waste’ garments are a collaboration betweenAnanTaya and Iro Iro.Ayush Kasliwalexplores ‘whole cloth’ usinghandloomin its entirety withminimal constructionto create wearable body sculpture. The name is inspired by the endangered Wild Ass, a native of the Kutch region in Gujarat.
Encouraging sustainable textile production, the fabric is custom woven in wide width by the weavers of the same region. The garments are made using origami-like folds and cuts and make unusual graphic silhouettes. The playful adventure championed byANANTAYA loves IRO IROinvites maximum empathetic engagement with the clothes, respects conscious environmental impact, and tells the truth that this work can only be made by hand.
The FOLD derives its shape from the folded sides, which eliminates the need for a side seam, with the selvage providing an interesting detail on the border.
