Holistic Design

TPASSION's design philosophy is FASHION IS PERFECT FOR SUSTAINBILITY and our designs are based on international trends, creative collaborations and holistic sustainability. 

 

International trends

Our international design team makes use of our rich network with fashion media, design houses, materials suppliers and many individual creative partners, to understand the latest consumer tastes and design quality products that fulfill customers' needs with short manufacturing cycles. 

 

Holistic Sustainability

TPASSION designs clothing with big positive footprint and healthy short cycles. Under Cradle2Cradle, the materials in old clothing become a resoruce for something new and we integrate this concept in our process design. 

 

Our holistic thinking extends to farmers, who produce the cotton fibre at a quality that we use to manufacture products for the consumers. This model integrates yarn-spinning, fabric knitting/weaving, dyeing and finishing, garment manufacturing and printing together in a holistc manner.Our role as a company to stand in the gap for those whose interests may have been overlooked in the traditional fashion industry is important. We live together in this business, and for example, when the fibre grown by our partner farms are not quite as expected, our designers scratch their heads, work with textile manufacturers to make other marketable products without sacrificing quality.

 

Creative Collaborations

Whilst TPASSION strives for zero waste design (design that minimizes fabric loss at the pattern making level), the Company still runs into fabric loss of 10-20% on average. Upcycling that utilises pre consumer waste - the waste produced through the manufacture of goods, prior to the finished product reaching the consumer is therefore put into practice at TPASSION. We conduct  a process where re-contextualization of the by-product of production as a resource instead of surplus is possible. One of TPASSION's major upcycling project partner is CIRBAF, a local upcycling design house in Hong Kong. The waste fabrics become a resource for creating incredibly beautiful Baby Slippers that are sold worldwide.
