HOW IT WORKS
The process is simple. KAPDAA’s Zero-Waste Advisors counsel you with the best possible options, keeping in mind the type and size of your offcuts, unused textiles, misprinted materials, unsold stock or end of rolls.
Next, the advisors share the product catalogue, which includes notebooks, eye masks, face masks, collapsible sunglass cases, tote bags and more. All products can be customised to feature your fabrics and branding.
Following the product selection, send your materials to KAPDAA’s offices in London. The design team will work alongside you to make a bespoke product, as per your brand and requirements.
All materials are sent to the Sustainable Hub in India for product manufacture. KAPDAA’s ethos ensures that every element of the process is sustainable: using natural glue, recycled paper, soot /natural ink for printing, biodegradable packaging and supporting local vendors.
KAPDAA provides fair trade employment to local artisans’, who handcraft and quality check each product. In doing so, they contributes towards organically increasing living standards. Once made, the items are shipped back to your studios using electric vans.
