ZERO WASTE GARMENTS AND SEWING PATTERNS
All Birgitta Helmersson garments are made using zero waste pattern cutting. This means that no fabric is wasted in the cutting and sewing process. We design and make all of our garments from our studio/store based in Malmö Sweden. We use europeans linens, organic cottons, naturally dyed textiles and re-purposed cloth.
All of our designs are also available as PDF sewing patterns, giving you the option to make them yourself.
