Katherine Soucie's Profile
Sans Soucie Clothing and Textile Design is a Vancouver based zero waste company that specializes in one of a kind clothing and textiles produced from textile industry waste.
Since 2003, Katherine Soucie has been developing her signature textile process. The textiles that Sans Soucie produces focuses on utilizing waste hosiery and knits discarded and sold by Canadian textile manufacturers. In the attempt to prevent these materials from ending up in the landfill, Soucie developed this concept in 2002 while she was a textile student at Capilano University in Vancouver, Canada.
Once Soucie obtains her waste materials she begins by hand dying these cast offs before the major reconstruction of these materials begin. From here the materials are cut, sorted, hand printed, hung to dry and heat set before it is formally constructed into a new material…
