Wellington-based sustainable fashion brand, Space Between, has developed a solution to significantly reduce clothing and textile waste and is seeking funding to work with local designer, Larissa Banks. The funding raised will go towards resourcing Banks, a Massey University design graduate, to collaborate with Space Between on developing their next range and looking at innovative ways to help businesses minimise their textile waste streams as commercial clothing waste is a huge contributor to this problem.
 
A social enterprise, Space Between’s upcycled clothing line is manufactured using pre- and post-consumer waste by a local not-for-profit Earthlink Apparel, based in Lower Hutt, who supports people with barriers to employment, such as mental illness.
 
The current Space Between range, Fundamentals, has been designed and produced from discarded NZ Post uniforms that would otherwise have gone to landfill. Their conjoined long dress (pictured) is made from three merino long sleeve tops. Buying one of these dresses rather than the equivalent dress using new materials saves 210 kg of carbon dioxide-equivalents from being emitted into the atmosphere.
