03 X ALL ABOUT THE PRODUCTS
WHAT DOES THE AMOUNT OF DONATION FOR UNBUILT PROJECT PRODUCTS DEPEND ON?
The Unbuilt Project collection was created with the aim of countering fast fashion, which is seriously damaging our planet.
The materials and workmanship chosen for our products have different costs compared to those of other brands. We reduce the final cost to the maximum possible, without sacrificing the quality offered and ensuring the protection of the workers who have created the collection.
The change in the world of design and fashion in particular, also starts from us consumers. It is no longer sustainable to buy so many products at reduced prices, which will then be thrown away because they can no longer be used. The central idea is to buy more consciously and less, choosing products that last over time and that, once worn, can be recycled and reborn in other forms.
We chose to give priority to quality, starting from the material used to make the garments. All our products are made from ECONYL® regenerated nylon, a fabric with high performance, which ensures a long life of the product. Discover more about ECONYL® regenerated nylon here.
These products are personalized by hand and the entire production process is carried out in factories in southern Italy, historically specialized in the textile sector. The work is carried out by skilled workers, in full respect of the rights of the workers, their protection and safety. For this reason, production costs are not comparable to those of other brands that choose to move production to developing countries or where labor costs are much lower.
The collaboration between C A G E Architecture and Nebra Skay Studio aims to create sustainable products to be provided in tribute to all the people who decide to make a donation to support the project.
HOW CAN I TAKE CARE OF MY PRODUCTS TO LAST AS LONG AS POSSIBLE?
The products of the Unbuilt Project collection were born to last. The maintenance label sewn onto each product contains all the information you need to take care of your products. Read the label carefully and don’t cut it off: we thought of it as an iconic detail of our garments, as well as very useful for you!
The fabric made of ECONYL® yarn can be machine washed according to the instructions on the maintenance label. The PC case and the bag are lined inside and have buttons, so we do not recommend washing in the washing machine; it is preferable to wash by hand.
For the first wash, we advise you to wash the products separately because the patch may slightly lose color. After the first wash, wash your products comfortably together with your other clothes.
Our t-shirt doesn’t need to be ironed! Wear it, pull it, crumple it: once relaxed, it will regain its original shape in a short time. This allows the t-shirt to be worn in any circumstance and to minimize the necessary maintenance. The fabric is also breathable and does not retain odors. The same fabric is used for the outer lining of the PC case and the bag.
Remember that every washing and ironing risks consuming the garment. In addition, washing and ironing require the consumption of water, energy and often harmful products. Wash the product only when necessary!
I ACCIDENTALLY DAMAGED ONE OF MY PRODUCTS, WHAT CAN I DO?
The products of our collection are directed by creative minds to creative minds!
Too often we throw away our clothes and products to buy new ones, without thinking that, with a little creativity and inventiveness, a defect can turn into iconic detail. With a needle and thread, alone or with the help of a tailor, think about how to repair the small damage.
Sew custom buttons, add more patches, repair the damage with contrasting color stitching. The options are endless and before you get rid of the products, you just have to try to repair them.
MY PRODUCT IS IRREPARABLY DAMAGED, WHAT CAN I DO?
We consider one of our products “irreparably damaged” only when you are certain that your product can no longer be repaired in any way. The yarn ECONYL® is not recyclable with plastic! Nylon is a material that requires a different treatment, so it’s important that you don’t recycle it with other household plastic waste.
The disposal of garments therefore cannot be carried out independently by you users and requires cooperation between you and us. If you want to get rid of your product, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Disposal products CAGE X NSS”. We will answer you with more information.
