IQTEST garments are made with fabrics that are collected from garment cutting factories. The fabric is what the mass producing designers throw away. The fabric is salvaged to keep it from the landfills.

It is important to think about the value of items beyond the usual uses. If one looks for potentials beyond the original purpose, lots of resources exist not wastes.

Look at the statistics of how much fabric gets thrown away!

IQTEST is focused on raising awareness about the environmental impact of the mass disposal of textiles.  28 million tons of fabric reaches the landfills each year. No environmental laws are in effect to control what the companies do with fabric waste.

Cutting factory excess fabric that is usually thrown away is a valuable resource not garbage!

If designers will look more closely at the fabric remaining after they layout their their primary designs, they can take the process to a next level and design from the remaining fabric.  I have made many garments from the pieces that were thrown away, I didn't even have to change the shapes to make a stylish wearable garment.  If designers will take the time to explore vertical off cut scraps and design from that they will create lest waste and make more garments.

One of a kind Garments made from factory waste!

Each IQTEST garment is made by hand and is unique. Many of the pieces have original artwork on them. Hand drawn images made with nontoxic screen print ink.
