Loomstate Zero-Waste Anorak


Eco-friendly US casualwear brand Loomstate has worked with Parsons The New School for Design in New York to create a limited-edition zero-waste anorak.

Loomstate’s founders Scott Mackinlay-Hahn and Rogan Gregory collaborated with Timo Rissanen, assistant professor of Fashion Design and Sustainability at Parsons, to develop a technical course at the school that teaches students about new sustainable techniques. Dyeing, finishing, sourcing, and the energy involved in making organic denim are all topics covered in the course.

Mackinlay-Hahn and Gregory mentored Parsons student Andria Crescioni – who has since graduated from the school – in the design and production of the Loomstate anorak. The final product was unveiled on Wednesday evening at an event hosted by Loomstate’s founders to celebrate Crescioni’s zero-waste design.
