100% of our collection is made from waste which reduces the pressure on mama earth to produce virgin material. Most raw material used to make fashion products consumes an extremely large quantity of resources and leave our lands and water polluted.
We Upcycle factory waste into short limited edition collections. Recycle post consumer waste and post cutting scraps into new fabrics to create season-less well finished garments made for longevity. What we waste is segregated and converted into accessories, soft furnishing products and paper to make our packaging or stationery products. All our pieces and fabrics are made with ethical production units and our packaging is designed to be plastic free.
That makes every product at Doodlage very special!
Our design process starts with the raw material. Once collected the fabric is fixed and the designs are created around the nature of the material and how we can create replicable pieces from what is available.
It is a play on the word Doodles or the art of doodling. Each piece designed at Doodlage, comes with additional doodles created by the artisan during the process of creation in order to fix a problem unique to his/her piece. These are a set of doodles designed at the sampling stage, its placement and suitability is left to each artisan to decide, making doodling a part of our design process.
As a small conscious label we do whatever possible in our capacity to make our pieces more cost effective. As our production increases we get closer to economies of scale but till then producing smaller quantities comes at a cost. Upcycling and recycling are both labour intensive processes. Even though fabric waste from factories (upcycling) come to us at a subsidised rate but to collect and save all that fabric there is a lot of sorting, panelling, patching, embroidering and design cost to make all this come together in a good looking collection. It is tedious but great for the environment as it reduces extra pressure on our resources to make fresh material and reduces fabric waste in our landfills which sit there to release more harmful gases back into our environment. Recycled fabrics are equally and sometimes even more expensive than virgin fabrics. Virgin fabrics don't include the cost of heavily depleting and polluting natural resources.
Our fabric suppliers for post production waste is several exporters and manufacturing units; since the waste is available in millions of tonnes just around Delhi we are sadly spoilt for choice and source from suppliers based on the collection we would like to create. For post consumer waste based recycled fabrics we source ready-made fabrics with some vendors, while develop our own fabrics using certified recycled yarns with other units. We work with both power loom and handloom based recycled fabrics. Our fabrics use no added chemicals or water for manufacturing. It uses no virgin fibre/yarn/fabric reducing the pressure on our resources by using what is already exists.
Each area in our brand is scalable. Large scale factories discard 16-20% of fabric waste. We use this to upcycle into a short collection. Each piece looks similar if not the same. We do create limited edition pieces till the fabric exhaust but working with multiple fabrics in each garment allows us to create a larger quantity in each style. While working with recycled fabrics we can replicate the fabric but we are a little restricted with colours available at our scale. With zero waste we only work to recycle our waste so collection lasts till waste lasts.
