(mot/tai/nai) means “don’t
waste” or “every little thing
has a soul”. It is inspired by
the Japanese tradition that
every object has a should and
should never be wasted.
The Organic Project has a similar view and practice to Mottainai.
We choose the perfect fabric for the collection called Respectrum—known for its super
soft and fade resistant personality during washes and made up of recycled plastic bottles.
(60% recycled polyester) It is dyed without the use of water, and compiled of 60% recycled
polyester. Pigment is added during the plastic recycling process, as it is essentially dyed
with out the use of water. I think this fabric is Amazing.
We try to bring value back to the pieces of fabric that
would normally discarded in the manufacturing process
and end up as a burden on the environment. The selvedge,
the small odds and ends that are left after the patterns are
cut, and will find a use for even the smallest scrap, whether
its to cover a button or a belt buckle. Essentially we
implement the sustainable practices of Reducing,
Reusing, Recycling and of course, all with Respect.
