On our minds: clothes made of recycled PET bottles
The world’s first ever “maker community for clothing" according to themselves. What do you think?
Here at Make it last we have been on about 3D-printing quite a lot recently, simply because it is one of the fastest developing innovations with the aim to make fashion more sustainable. Finding 3D-printed garments that are wearable, affordable or even available to buy however is a bit of a challenge – and this is why The Post Couture Collective grabbed our attention. Calling themselves the world’s first ever “maker community for clothing”, this Dutch label offer minimalistic (and yes, slightly futuristic) designs that are cut from a 3D-knitted material made from recycled PET bottles. The garments are only produced when they are sold, which helps the brand overcome the issue of deadstock. Also, with the pieces being made from plastic (polyester), they can be easily recycled again.
