Sri Lanka's primary industry is the garment manufacturing industry. The garbage is introduced to the environment in significant amounts every year due to the high production capacity. Post-consumer fabric waste accounts for most discarded textile waste. Recovery prospects for controlling post-consumer textile waste have been reviewed timely. Alternative value-added techniques, such as printing and dying, are quickly displacing traditional value-added procedures. Instead of using destructive procedures, fabric waste from garment manufacturing can also be used as a value addition to new products with handcrafted sustainability modifications. Waste fabric pieces have been utilized as value additions above the resulting combination, strengthening the base fabric's durability, texture, comfort, confidence, and alternative styling. The purpose of this research is to produce an experimental prototype while exploring creativity-driven available options for repurposing post-consumer textile waste and proposing an entrepreneurial business opportunity to reach the local community's customer base. Meanwhile, the research will consider both environmental and ethical sustainability approaches. Experimental practical options have been tested throughout while evaluating the appropriate methodologies to find a better prospect.
