Quirk: Supporting Sustainability

in the Fashion Industry

In an era where sustainability is not just a buzzword, but a critical necessity, we are proud to be a part of Quirk, reshaping the fashion industry in our small way. The planet is burdened with 100 billion garments produced annually, and shockingly, 30% of them remain unsold. That’s around 30 billion unsold items, discarded like yesterday’s news. It’s mind-boggling! The environmental impact goes beyond textile waste, encompassing water usage, discarded dyes, CO2 and methane emissions, and extensive transportation. If left unchecked, this problem will only worsen.

At Quirk, we believe that the solution lies in a simple approach – NO INVENTORY. Instead of mass-producing clothes in anticipation of demand and hoping for quick sales, we have adopted a more sustainable made-to-order model. By only producing what is needed, we are not contributing to the excess inventory that ends up in landfills or incinerated.

The No-Inventory Revolution

We offer a unique solution to this overwhelming issue: NO INVENTORY. The concept is as simple as it sounds. Instead of producing large quantities of garments and hoping they sell, we have adopted a made-to-order model. Each item is crafted only when someone wants it, eliminating waste and ensuring that every piece is desired and valued.

Prioritizing Sustainability, One Garment at a Time

Our made-to-order model is sustainability in action. By carefully crafting each item on demand, we significantly reduce the need for energy-consuming production lines, mitigate the risk of excess and unsold inventory, and significantly lower the carbon footprint associated with manufacturing and transportation.
