Officina+39 integrates circularity to reduce the environmental impact of dyeing. Officina+39’s Recycrom dyestuff range is made from pre-owned clothing and textile scraps.
Recently Italian fashion company, Blue of a Kind and Officina+39 partnered to bring together their respective waste upcycling processes to reduce water consumption and make a sustainable note.
Officina+39 and Blue of a Kind incorporated artist Erik Varusio to do a live painting session at Blue of a Kind’s Milan store on Jan. 27.
Erik Varusio customized T-shirts from Blue of a Kind by using Recycrom as paint. Based in Vicenza, Erik has formerly worked on prints, graphics and designs for brands.
Officina+39 said in a release “The [fashion] sector has been hit hard in recent years by the pandemic and the difficulty in finding raw materials, but opportunities have been generated to think about new partnerships and initiatives, to focus on available resources and real needs, and to invest in sustainable technologies for change.”
