Based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, tonlé produce a sustainable, wearable, womenswear fashion collection. Featuring piecework, tonal color blocking, gradating color stories, and tone on tone patchwork, the collection is punctuated with intriguing engineered block prints and artisanal hand knit shrugs. All designs are based on zero waste principles, with tonlé’s entire aesthetic based around the creative problem solving required to design from other people’s left over scraps of recycled materials. Tonlé also find a way to incorporate their own waste back into designs, with their designers working side by side with their production teams to incorporate even the smallest scraps that would otherwise end up in landfill. Even the tiniest textile scraps are utilized through tedious hand cutting, individually sewn back into yarn, which is then either knitted or woven into new fabric.
