World’s first Zero-waste Necktie by ANDREW WILLIAMS ®

For a long time, knitting techniques have been used to make items of apparel with near zero waste of yarn. However, neckties are invariably made from woven fabric.

New designs of patterns and markers for making Zero-waste neckties have now been created. These registered designs have been used to make the world’s first necktie from woven fabric without waste.

Zero-waste fashion is part of the broader Sustainable Fashion movement. Zero-waste Fashion is not a new concept, early examples of zero-waste or near zero-waste garments include Kimono, Sari and many other traditional folk costumes.
