Vlisco is a leading producer of batik-printed fabrics for the African market. To ensure its leading position in a niche market, Vlisco removes any material from the production line that fails to meet their standards for the highest quality. Designer Simone Post did an extensive material research into Vlisco’s waste material that led to a new application for textile that otherwise would have been destroyed.
Using folding and cutting techniques the waste fabric is used to make colourful patterned carpets. A unique product with endless possible colour combinations is created each and every time. This way, residues gain real value.
