Sometimes the garment factories order too much fabric, or a design gets cancelled resulting in piles of leftover fabrics. Traditionally, the leftover fabric ended up in landfills, but nowadays, the fabric is typically sold to smaller clothing brands and tailors at local markets. By using the material to make new garment items, we prevent beautiful fabric from going to waste and contribute to a more sustainable garment production.
Ketut Riyanti is a female tailor and designer located in Ubud. Ubud has a large number of yoga tourists, and over the years, Ketut has specialized in lounge wear and clothing with a relaxed fit that are comfortable to wear, and her unique designs and skilled craftsmanship are immediately noticeable upon entering her small tailor shop.
Ketut comes from a small village in the Klungkung province, about 35 km from Ubud. She tries to visit her hometown a couple of days each month, but otherwise, she spends most of her time in her tailor workshop. One of Ketut’s all-time bestsellers is her version of yoga joggers/harem pants. Her small shop is located in a neighborhood with a lot of yoga travelers, and Ketut started noting, that many of them were wearing these baggy, loose-fitting, drop-crotch pants on the way to the yoga studio, so one day, she decided to design her own pants, combining the drop-crotch style with locally made, handwoven, ikat fabric, that she buys from weavers in her home village. Ketut also makes beautiful clothing from upcycled silk, which she buys at the local market, where fabric left over from Indonesia’s textile industry is sold to local tailors and designers. Ketut often visits the market and spends a lot of time browsing the stalls, looking for the nicest silk fabric in patterns and colors that suit her style.
