Ø WASTE 
WINDBREAKER

Limited edition collaboration

This zero waste windbreaker is the result of a collaboration between the KIABI design teams and Mylène L’Orguilloux, co-founder of ZWDO Collective. As a first zero waste exploration, Kiabi  distributed this windbreaker in limited edition from 2021 April 9th.

Share information to augment the impact

To augment the impact of this pattern development, KIABI agreed to share the technical information publicly so both individuals and organizations can reuse the optimization work for future windbreaker productions.

Home sewing adaptations

As part of ZWDO Collective, Mylène L’Orguilloux - initially in charge of the DIY development - decided to make the most of the collective pedagogy skills to adapt the industrial version into a version accessible to home-makers, that provide pedagogy, size inclusivity and language accessibility.
