The unique ‘Zero Waste’ garments are a collaboration between AnanTaya and Iro Iro.Ayush Kasliwal explores ‘whole cloth’ usinghandloom in its entirety with minimal construction to 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 by ANANTAYA loves IRO IRO invites maximum empathetic engagement with the clothes, respects conscious environmental impact, and tells the truth that this work can only be made by hand.
The SQUARE has a boxy casual flare, with angular edges, with the lines emphasizing the construction of the garment.
