Coffee BIO-Leather Bag

Your waste is my treasure!
Working with organic waste can bring circular solutions  for the implementation of closed loops of organic feedstocks.  At Fab Textiles we have been working with food waste since October 2018 and many researchers through their internship developed and evolved recipes for making food waste biocomposites.  There are already some small companies that produce bioleathers with waste, one of them from Mexico called ECOPLASO that I had the possibility to get to know in one of my conferences at ¨Demand Solutions¨ in Miami 2018.

 

RECIPE / COFFEE BIOLEATHER

2G sodium alginate
2G dried coffee grains of any organic waste in powder
2G olive oil
5G glycerin
33G water 
(everything is in grams using a precision scale)

MIX for calcification
7G of calcium chloride in 100ml of water

Various organic waste bio-leather samples

 

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:

1- Weight all the ingredients with a precision scale.
2- Mix the powder together with the glycerin and the olive oil.
3- Add the water and use a mechanical blender to obtain an homogeneous solution.
4- Cast in a silk screen print frame ( you can create your own using any textile and wood)
5- Mix the Calcium chloride with water in a sprayer bottle.
6- Spray the biomaterial on top and bottom with the calcium chloride solution.
7- Let the calcium chloride act for 5´ and rinse with clean water.
8- Let the composite sample dry in a dry and warm place for one week. Depending on the thickness and the size of the sample it may take longer. It will also vary due to the local temperature and humidity.
9- When the product is dry you can separate it from the frame.

Note: As the sample dries, it can become curved, so place it between two level surfaces and some weight on top so at the end we can obtain a really flat sheet

A simple T-shirt

A Simple shirt, is not so simple

Everyone needs a basic shirt. Here you can learn how to create this sleeveless top  tailored to your own size. If you are using the Seamly 2D pattern making program, I created a pattern that you can download and change the measurement table to your own size.  If you are not familiar with this program you can also choose from 3 different standard sizes (S, M, L). The print I’m working with was created by Aldana Persia, in Fab Lab Barcelona with thermochromic silk screen printing paint, therefore it changes colour with temperature change.

STEPS

1.Print the pattern and cut out the pattern pieces,  working on the interior side of your fabric. 
2.Using the Overlock machine, or a zig-zag stitch (if you don’t own an overlock machine) sew along the sides and the shoulders of the back and front of the T-shirt. As well as one side of every bias stripe.




3.With right sides facing together, sew the front and back shirt together the shoulders and the sides.



4.Press the seams

5. Sew the end of the stripes together to create a circle.


6.Pin and stitch the stripes on the neckline, right sides facing together.

7.Make cut-ins on seam allowance with small scissors. Make sure that you don’t cut the actual seam or other parts of the T-Shirt.


8.Flip and press the stripe to the inside of the neckline. Pin and stitch on top to keep it in place.

9.Repeat the same steps (4, 5,6, 7) to finish the armhole.
10.Finish the raw bottom with overlock machine (or zig-zag stitch), fold the seam inside( 1cm) and stitch on top.

voilá.. your custom made the shirt is ready!

Moda de Código Abierto:
Patronaje digital y corte laser
Introducción en las herramientas de dibujo, archivo de medidas e impresión de Seamly2D y Creación de un repositorio común de patrones.
El patronaje digital se soporta en herramientas que están en el mercado con un coste muy alto y con poca compatibilidad entre las diferentes opciones. Apostar por herramientas de software libre nos abre interesantes posibilidades a la par que nos permite diversificarnos más en el mercado. En ese taller vamos a aprender el programa Seamly2D para generar patrones que se cortaran por laser. 

Seamly2D es un programa de patronaje digital de software libre que permite hacer archivos de medidas, dibujar un patrón y aplicar los archivos de medidas que previamente hemos rellenado,  para redimensionar el patrón.
A la hora de dibujar el patrón, Seamly2D imita la formas de trabajar del patronaje sobre mesa. Una vez realizado el patrón puedes aplicarle los centímetros de costura que necesites, unir y separar piezas…
Una vez terminado, puedes imprimir el patrón de diferentes formas, en plotter, por folios que luego se encajan, o directamente con herramientas de fabricación digital como el plotter de corte o una cortadora láser.
Los archivos son exportables a Inkscape, Illustrator, Autocad y Draftsight.
Este taller ofrece una visión práctica de una cultura digital abierta y contribuye a la comunidad de Seamly2D creando un repositorio de patrones.

Durante este taller trabajemos tres objetivos:

1. Capacitar a los y las participantes en las herramientas del programa Seamly2D mientras siguen el dibujo de un patrón básico.
2. Introducir a los y las participantes en la cultura del software libre participando en la creación de un repositorio de patrones liberados de la comunidad Seamly2D
3. Aplicar los patrones digitales a las opciones de la fabricación digital (corte laser)
------------------------------------------------------------------

-Para participar en esta actividad es importante tener nociones de dibujo vectorial y de patronaje.
-Los y las participantes deben traer al taller un portátil con el programa descargado (ver aqui) y una cinta de medir. 
-Los participantes llevaran nuestro manual de partonaje digital con las reglas de medicion

Instructores:  Anastasia Pistofidou, Elisabeth Lorenzi, Aldana Persia
 ENGLISH
Open Source Fashion  :
Digital pattern making & laser cutting
 The digital pattern is supported in tools that are on the market with a very high cost and with little compatibility between the different options. Betting on free software tools opens up interesting possibilities at the same time that allows us to diversify more in the market.
Therefore, this training proposal also aims to offer a practical vision of an open digital culture and contribute to the open source fashion community by creating a repository of patterns.
Introduction to Seamly2D's drawing, measurement file and printing tools, Creation a common repository of patterns and laser cutting.

Seamly2D (formerly called Valentina project) is a free software digital pattern program that allows you to make measurement files, draw a pattern and apply the measurement files that you have previously filled in, to resize the pattern.At the time of drawing the pattern, Seamly2D imitates the ways of working the pattern on table. Once the pattern is done you can apply the sewing centimeters you need, join and separate pieces ...
Once finished, you can print the pattern in different ways, in plotter, by folios that are then fitted, or directly with digital manufacturing tools such as the cutting plotter or a laser cutter.
Seamly2D's files are exportable to Inkscape, Illustrator, Autocad and Draftsight.

 During this workshop we work three objectives:

1. Train participants in the tools of this program while following the drawing of basic patterns.
2. Introduce the participants in the free software culture by participating in the creation of a repository of free patterns of the Seamly2D community
3. Learn how to laser cut their patterns.
------------------------------------------------------------------

-To participate in this activity it is important to have notions of vector drawing and pattern design.
-Participants must bring a laptop with the downloaded program to the workshop (see here) and a tape measure.
-Participants will be given our digital guide for pattern making and its basic rules

Instructors: Anastasia Pistofidou, Elisabeth Lorenzi, Aldana Persia
The workshop will take place only if there is a minimum of 10 participants.
