The German made Stole machine will also help reduce the carbon footprint (If they secure the machine, they plan on spending a couple of months learning how to operate the machine). Usually, sweaters and such are cut from large pieces of material, and the scraps between the shapes are recycles.
It's not a sweater in the sky dream: With the right tools, they can do this. In particular, with a Stoll full fashion knitting machine that acts sort of like a 3D printer.
"We can get people interested in what we are doing and spread the word about ethical manufacturing," said deGuzman.
Recyling is better than throwing away the fabric, of course, but recycling still requires energy.
At the time, I couldn't imagine spending that much money on just one pair of shoes. But 10 years later, I am glad that I did. Those same boots are keeping my still wimpy Southern toes for these harsh Asheville area winters.
They decided to go the Kickstarter option rather than borrow money from a bank or friends and family because it offers them the opportunity to spread their message while raising money.
The older I get, the more sense slow fashion makes for me. The proof, for me, comes in a pair of boots purchased a decade ago.
It's not a fantasy, but it also isn't free, either.
That's the basic idea of slow fashion: Buy less stuff. That will last longer, but cost more at the Adidas Eqt Adv Support Black White
Grace Gouin, co founder and creative director, and Mariano deGuzman, co founder and CEO, want to be able to design and make a custom fit wool sweater in an hour. Yup, Adidas Energy Boost Esm Grey
"Our goal is to localize the process," deGuzman said. "We want to get our materials here, make it here and reduce the carbon footprint. We want to bring a little bit of Asheville to everyone's home in America."
"We can create sweaters with the power of the sun," deGuzman said.
Appalatch recently launched a campaign with Kickstarter a community funding website to pay for a used Stoll machine for $50,000. With 22 days left to go Wednesday, they've raised more than $25,600 from close to 200 donors.
Asheville fashion company seeks community funding for cutting
If the Kickstarter is successful, the duo plan to work partly out of Echoview Fiber Mill, which like Appalatch, is another former Ideas cover subject.
Those two concepts don't seem to fit. But for the duo behind Appalatch, an Asheville based sustainable outdoor clothing company, that's exactly what they aim to accomplish.
Appalatch takes slow fashion forward, however, with its all American made focus and emphasis on local.
The innovation doesn't stop with the Echoview's Harden Adidas Black
LEED accomplishment. Gouin noted that if their Kickstarter campaign is successful, they will be the first business to create custom fitted sweaters with this type of Stole.
The sweaters definitely cost more than what you could pick up at a retail store. But the idea is that it costs more, but will last a very long time.
Like a 3D object printer, the user inputs the specs of the object they want to make and the computer creates the object; in this case, sleeves and the body of a sweater. Then, someone needs to sew those pieces together, and ta da!
Ta da aside, this is not magic, as Gouin said. "This is technology," she said.
According to Appalatch's charming Kickstarter video, the Stole machine process will reduce 20 30 percent waste.
not a typo. One hour.
And the perks for donating are some of Appalatch's high quality, durable classic designs, including their 100 percent American made wool T Adidas Men's Duramo Running Shoes shirt for $59 or more, as a well as one of their custom fitted wool sweater for $189.
