今天的社会已不再依附于他们所拥有的物品，而是开始丢弃曾经对他们更有意义的财产。在这个设计方案中，它试图解构被遗忘的衣服，将它们重新循环，变成漂亮的、创新的手工制品，并加强创新。重点在于创造纺织品，这些纺织品利用了男性工作衬衫的大部分劳动密集型部件，否则这些部件就会被丢弃(Grerard et al.， 2011)。男人对衬衫特别感兴趣，是因为他们认为，这种衣服需要清洁和替换常规的性质，因为它们在社会的工作经济中使用，需要个人保持整洁，以专业人士的身份出现。本设计基于设计原则和公平贸易原则。在废物回收方面，特别是由牛仔裤材料制成的男式衬衫，该设计方案具有显著的好处。
在研究了十字绣和烟熏等传统工艺技术后，我们发现，在纺织行业的废弃物再利用方面，存在着明显的创新缺口。这种废弃材料不仅可以回收利用，还可以用来制作新衣服，还可以用废弃的纺织品制作创新的手工艺品。本设计的具体特点是探索如何通过纺织废料的循环利用，并将其用于装饰目的，从而促进公平贸易手工艺的发展(Grerard et al.， 2011)。使用传统纺织技术而不是广泛应用于时尚行业的想法有几个方面。首先是把人们的注意力吸引到这样一种观点上，即不仅是财产，而且服装也在迅速被丢弃;其次是发展中国家使用的传统工艺技术也在被推到一边，从而导致遗产的丢失。因此，本设计方案力求完成一个适当的框架，使人们能够深入了解本设计将包含哪些元素、其开发基础(即使用的设计原则和方法概述)。
纺织品生产是一个不破坏环境的过程。纺织品能够消耗大量的自然资源，如石油、土地和水。它们进一步利用主题化学物质，产生大量的二氧化碳。但这不仅仅是投入纺织和时装生产的东西，因为这也是在生产和客户使用过程中出现的东西，意味着使用公平贸易。每年，数百万吨纺织品不幸被丢弃，这是整个欧洲和美国的状况。在中国，每年生产前和生产后的纺织废料总计达2000万吨，甚至更多。这种纺织废料进一步导致环境污染和全球填埋场堵塞，但用于制备这些纺织品的独特资源最终被浪费(Grerard et al.， 2011)。更好的办法是通过对纺织废料的再利用，使设计师可以将纺织废料从填埋场中转移出来，延长纺织材料的使用寿命。有趣的机会在于，纺织品，尤其是劳动密集型的男式衬衫是可回收的。这可以在100%的基础上完成，并且他们有能力满足不同时间的需求。这意味着一个人应该努力创造和环境发展，而不是通过丢弃纺织品产生废物。
Societies today have moved farther from attaching themselves to objects that they own and have started discarding their possessions which once had more meaning for them. Within this design proposal, it has been tried to deconstruct the forgotten clothes and up-cycle them into beautiful and innovative hand crafted products with enhanced innovation. The focus lies in creating textiles which make use of most labour intensive components of men’s work shirts that otherwise would have been discarded (Grerard et al., 2011). The particular interest in shirts of men comes from the thought that such garments require cleaning and replacement of regular nature due to their usage in the working economy of the society that needs individuals to be neat and tidy to appear as professionals. This design is based on design principles and fair trade principles. The proposed design has significant benefit to offer when it comes to recycling of waste especially men’s shirts that are made of jeans material.
After researching over traditional crafting techniques such as cross-stitching and smocking, it was evident that there exists a gap in innovation when it comes to reusing waste material from textile sector. This waste material can not only be used for recycling purposes and making new clothes from it, but also for making innovative handicrafts from discarded textiles. The specific feature of this design is to find out the way in which fair trade handicraft can be brought forward through up cycling of textile waste and using it for decorative purposes as well (Grerard et al., 2011). The idea to use traditional techniques of textiles not used widely within the industry of fashion lies in several perspective. First lies in drawing focus over the perspective that not only possessions but also clothing are being discarded quickly and secondly lies in the perspective traditional techniques of craft used by developing nations are also being pushed aside as well resulting in heritage to be lost. Therefore, this design proposal seeks to accomplish a proper framework which allows an insight into what elements this design would consist of, its basis of development that is the design principles and the methodological overview utilized.

Production of textiles is a process that does not damage the environment. Textiles are capable of consuming large quantities of resources that are natural such as oil, land and water. They further utilize topic chemicals and generate a large amount of carbon dioxide. But this is not simply what has been put into production of textile and fashion because it is also what comes forward during the processes of production and customer use implying the use of fair trade. Every year, millions of tonne of textiles are discarded unfortunately and this is the state across Europe and America. Within China, the total pre and post annual production textile waste is depicted at 20 million tonnes and even more. This textile waste furthermore results in polluting the environment and clogging landfills across the globe but the unique resources used for preparing these textiles are eventual wasted (Grerard et al., 2011). The better provision is that through reuse of textile waste, it is possible for designers to divert waste of textiles away from landfilling and prolonging the textile material lifecycle. The intriguing opportunity lies in the fact that textiles especially labour intensive men’s shirt are recyclable. This can be done on 100 percent basis and they have the capability of meeting the requirements various times. This implies that one should strive for creativity and environmental development rather than generating waste through discarding the textiles.
