Description

After working in the fashion industry, Ilke Usluca became increasingly aware of the unsustainable practices and in 2020 started her own range as an advocate of zero-waste. Ilke hand draws all the prints, and designs and handcrafts each product in her studio in London. Consciousness, quality and multi-functionality are among the core values of the products and with a strict zero-waste policy she is aiming to help cut down pre-consumer waste for a positive impact on the environment.

What is Zero-waste and How Do We Make a Textile Item Zero-waste?

Zero waste textiles, as the name implies, is the process of designing and making garments without wasting any or very little fabric. This could mean that the garment pattern is designed in such a way to utilise every last bit of fabric – the pattern pieces fit together perfectly, kind of like Tetris. Textiles have a significant impact on the environment during their lifecycle. A large amount of water, energy, pesticides, and fertilizers have made the global textile industry one of the world’s most polluting and waste-producing industries.

All the patterns of our products are made from blocks of rectangles and if occurred the excess fabric is folded into the product not to be thrown anything into the landfill. Consciousness, quality, and multifunctionality are among the core of Ilke Usluca Design. We design all the prints and hand-make all the products in our little London studio.

What is Bamboo Silk?

This vegan silk is a fibre that comes from bamboo plants. It is much more durable than regular silk and features antimicrobial and hypoallergenic properties. Bamboo silk is made by working the cellulose of the bamboo plant into a paste. Once dry, the sticky paste is woven into a fibre known as bamboo silk.
