Thanks Holly! Yes, it's very exciting to have the website up and live. Now the hard work begins! I will definitely be talking about your technique so hopefully I can send a few people your way soon. I met with Laurie Foon last week and she mentioned your zero waste as an influence in their summer collection, which I thought was great.

Hey Holly, It was great to see your exhibition at the NewDowse recently - I love your no waste method. Any established/existing designers out there talking to you about implementing this technique in their businesses?

Hi Holly, I enjoyed reading your Wordpress articles and the pic of your World (NZ) jacket. Very close to my All-Black tartan. Zero waste begins with the choice of fabric. Wool is a naturally-occurring by-product of a food source - use it or waste it. Sustainable, eco-friendly, long-lasting, with no waste of valuable water supply in production. In the form of tartan it becomes a fashion fabric. NZ should be world leaders.
