2. WHY DO WE NEED ZERO & MINIMAL WASTE MANAGEMENT?
• During the apparel production process in factories, a lot of textile waste is generated at various
stages like cutting, sewing etc. The term 'zero waste' has emerged as the new savior for
addressing textile pollution, the second major contributor to global waste.
The designer should have a proper understanding of the reusability and recyclability of all the
elements that are used in making the garment and also clarity regarding the production process to
avoid all possible stages that add to waste. During large-scale apparel production, maximum
textile waste is generated during the cutting process.
This solely depends on marker planning and marker efficiency to use every bit of the fabric
used.Although many designers have tried to control it through subtraction cutting, The need of the
hour today is for all designers and manufacturers to adopt a zero waste policy and save the planet
geometric cutting, jigsaw cutting, incision cutting, and other techniques, most large-scale factories
usually ignore this issue to meet the production deadline and plan fabric cutting with an additional
allowance of 3 per cent fabric consumption for wastage.+
3. •Geometrical Cut
This method involves the
use of geometrical shapes to
create garments, such as
squares, triangles and
circles etc. Kimono designs.
