Updated : December 2020
Season-less upcycled textiles from factory waste
Doodlage upcycles factory waste into short limited edition collections. They recycle post consumer waste and post cutting scraps into new fabrics to create season-less well finished garments made for longevity. The waste generated by Doodleage is segregated and converted into accessories, soft furnishing products and paper to make their packaging or stationery products.
All their pieces and fabrics are made with ethical production units and the packaging is designed to be plastic free.

The process enables textile waste management professionals to look for sustainable alternatives, thus reducing the environmental impact of improper textile waste disposal.
Over the years, Doodlage has launched several sustainability based initiatives and collaborated with other local ethical fashion brands as well including Iro Iro from Jaipur. They have featured their collections in pop-up events in New Delhi, have launched an saree repurposing initiative and collaborated with Tata Cliq's Indian design section 'Indiluxe".
Doodlage's collaboration with Tencel India resulted in their limited edition collection being showcased at Lakme Fashion Week SS 2019. They also work with NGOs like Samarpan and Goonj. Doodlage collaborates with other brands and export houses to make something exclusive for them from fabrics leftover from their productions including bags, home accessories and furnishings.
