On every project we undertake, our most important objective is to relate with clients and understand their core necessities and goals.
Below are some examples of the work we’ve done - take a look, and get in touch to learn more.
Collaboration between design students from
Estonian Academy of Arts (EKA) and Aruna Clothing Company (India)
With the help of a pioneer in sustainable fashion design Reet Aus and a progressive partner Aruna Clothing Company
from India, a group of master's degree students were researching marker leftovers, based on the product types, material composition and volumes, but also shape and size of the leftover pieces to make a sustainable design guide for both factories and designers.
We approached this project carefully, as it was our very first undertaking of this scale. We studied our client’s business to create a focused and effective solution. We loved working with this client, and look forward to collaborating together on many more successful projects in the future.
WOOLLEN SOCKS FROM
KNITWEAR INDUSTRY WASTE
A story of success with Kirinord OÜ
in Estonia and a small brand Kapukad.
This project was about finding ways how to redesign a product "Kapukad" to a manufacturing level. We started with a local Estonian knitwear manufacturer Kirinord OÜ who is primarily producing for the Nordic market while working mainly with natural fibers. We used already cut pieces left in the warehouse for the product development. However this can easily be incorporated in the cutting phase, collecting necessary details for side-lines simultaneously with main production. Simple solution with extra revenue and less material waste.
We are currently in the middle of closing the production loop by developing manufacturing methods to regenerate new material from the rest of the cutting waste as well as post-consumer waste of Kapukad.
Clients often approach UnKnot with a general idea of what they need, and this project was no different. We were able to jump right in with our expertise and really helped the company grow and evolve. Today, their business is doing exceptionally well, and we’re proud to have been part of the process.
