My collection for Shared Talent made an almost zero wastage workshop a reality. It was an outcome of the used scraps collected at the Shared Talent India workshop. Scraps of silk, scraps of muslin, scarps of cotton and the scrap threads lying on the workshop floor left behind by all the other designers at the workshop were carefully collected, sorted, ironed, pieced, stitched, restitched to create new surface textures. The collection is a story of sustainable living, of thrift, of remaking, of patching the scraps to make a useful new.
