In 2009, EILEEN FISHER started a take-back program—part of a circular system designed to preserve the value of our clothes at every stage, in any condition. We’ve collected over 1.3 million garments since then, designating pieces that are beyond repair as raw material for Waste No More, an experimental design studio based in Irvington, NY. Led by Creative Director Sigi Ahl, the studio transforms damaged clothes into one-of-a-kind artworks, pillows, wall hangings and accessories using a custom felting technique that requires no water or dyes. It’s an ambitious experiment, rooted in a deep appreciation for the value of renewable materials—one that takes an artisanal approach to craft and technology.
