At Saint Belle we believe that we should change the way we think about the textile industry and what we should accept as producer and consumer. We are consuming resources at an alarming rate and recycling methods can help us use much less.
Cutting waste from the fashion industry is discarded but can still hold value. Our fabric producers in India take the waste and shred it mechanically, the fibre is then spun into yarns.
By using hand woven fabrics, Saint Belle is contributing to the preservation of artisanal skills passed down for generations. Weavers acquire and master an actual skill, rather than operating machinery, which is highly relevant for a circular textile economy.
