The system uses a multi-faceted approach to sustainability including:

  • Teaching how to economically lay out fabric before cutting
  • Using a two piece pattern to allow for use of smaller pieces of fabric (eg. the Sleeve Extension module)
  • Explaining how to colour block or join multiple pieces of fabric together (eg. the Slice It Dice It module)
  • Promoting the use of existing fabric
  • Teaching skills to allow people to amend or re-imagine existing clothes
