A bit of a hoarder, are you? Tidying Up With Marie Kondo felt like a personal attack? We feel you, especially when it comes to fabric and textile waste. Be it your mum’s old saree or that kurta (or t-shirt) that just reminds you of some good times. Reinvent them!
Based out of Basavanagar, Reinvention repurposes fabric into anything it allows them to. Currently, they take orders for bags, quilts, bed linen (including cushion and pillow covers), and pouches. Apart from helping you hold onto your memories, Reinvention also makes their own range of products from scraps of previous projects, so they’re zero waste too! The most popular order is patchwork quilts (using baby clothes and childhood blankets). Coming a close second is bags. Old cotton sarees (a hot favourite), comfy t-shirts, and even old denim - anything you have, they’ll work with it.
Contact them on social media, or give them a ring and let them know what you’re looking for, a little bit about yourself (so they can make it to your taste and interests if required), and drop off the fabric you need to be reinvented. Depending on the design, it will take between two and three weeks to reach you.
