Big Brands Take On Scrap Fabric High-Fashion

See that scrap of leftover fabric on the floor of the textile mill or clothing manufacture floor? Don’t throw it away and bog up the landfill! Turn it into a dress! Then sell it on the floor of one of the largest retailers in the world!

Sound insane? Sound like a losing venture? Not these days. Goodone, a UK recycled clothing company, has signed on with Topshop and Tesco (Tesco being one of the largest retailers in the world). Over the past year, Goodone has reworked their strategy in order to get to the point where they could contract with such large-scale retailers. It seems the strategy paid off with contracts.

    Wow! What a great idea!

    What I like most about turning scrap cloth into dresses is that the scrap is probably almost free!

    Free raw material. The way to start a profitable business!
