You know the famous NZ brand Liam. Well, we are big fans. Especially when COVID hit and the fashion industry came to a stand still, Liam took the time to re-evaluate the future of fashion, and decided to side step production and look in to a circular business model by making patterns.
With these clothing patterns, you can now take Liams' beautiful clothing in to your own hands - literally. You could choose your own sustainable or recycled fabrics. You will be reviving the art of sewing, of which you will learn skills that will help you to mend your clothing and extending their lives. You can keep re-using this pattern over and over. And you will appreciate your clothing in a new way - you will care for it, mend it, and keep it.
NZME is an integrated media company, producing newspapers, including The New Zealand Herald, radio stations and digital platforms. As part of their production process, newsprint reels have unusable paper offcut lengths and it’s these offcuts that have stood out as a terrific solution both for Liam Patterns and for NZME. The solution utilises these leftovers that would otherwise be sent to recycling, giving them a second life as the paper source for Liam Patterns’ printed patterns, reducing waste and helping to support local industry and locally sourced + made product opportunities.
