The shawl is made from dead stock fabric that would otherwise be thrown away, but not only is the garment’s creation sustainable, it may also keep waste out of your wardrobe in another way as well.
The garment’s designers wanted to create a versatile, practical clothing item that can be worn in multiple ways. The shawl was made with women in mind and is designed to flatter many body types. It can be worn as a standard shawl, but it can also be draped so the owner can wear it as a dress or top, too. The fact that the garment can be adjusted means it will function as a wardrobe staple, allowing you to wear it on many occasions and consequently purchase fewer additional pieces in the long-run.
Convertible clothing is a growing trend because consumers get more for their money and buy less, but also because it allows people to express their creativity by styling their own outfits.
