The fashion industry accounts for about 10% of global carbon emissions and nearly 20% of wastewater. The energy consumption is higher than both the aviation and shipping industries combined.

With scientific and technological advancements, fabrics can be produced from bio-waste, consumed, and decomposed with minimal environmental impact.

The system located in the basement level processes bio-waste sludge to harvest energy from bio-gasses while also producing bio-plastics which are broken down into fabrics. The upper floors, interspersed with weaving machines, combine the process of making, creating, designing, and selling fabrics which are stored along the two side walls of the building.

The system utilises water collection and solar panels on the roof to act as secondary sources of energy and maximising the buildings potential to generate its own energy.
