A seamless fabric texture with Pre-Loved Bio-Textile by Studio Sarmite. The image represents a physical area of 200 x 133 mm (7.9 x 5.2 inches) in total.

Pre-Loved, is a new bio-textile concept made of inferior textile fibres. Developed by Studio Sarmite, Pre-Loved skips the need for traditional textile recycling entirely. Instead it puts emphasis on recyclability: The leather-like material can be dissolved at the end of its life and the textile fibres repurposed for the next production cycles. In order to remove the existing stigma of recycled textiles, Studio Sarmite collaborates with Roua Atelier to develop a pioneering dyeing method for mixed blends with help of natural pigments. The dyeing is integrated within the making of the bio-textile thus leading to a unique design language. The dyeing becomes the designing, which gives room for surprising patterns and playfulness. In addition, both designers learned that the colour can be extracted during the recycling process of the bio-textile and altered for the next lifecycle without adding additional resources. The first findings of the ongoing research project are presented during DDW 2022 and Material District 2023. The project has been commissioned by Small But Perfect, Impact Hub Lisbon and Fashion Revolution.
