Young children grow quickly, which can be a wonderful thing to witness. Unfortunately, they also quickly outgrow their clothes, which isn't so wonderful. For parents, buying new, larger clothes can be expensive. Not only that, but all those new outfits are a huge waste of resources. But what if we had clothes that could grow along with the children who wear them?

小孩子長得很快,目睹過程是件很棒的事。遺憾的是,他們也長很快而穿不下他們的衣服,這就沒那麼棒了。對父母來說,購買較大的新衣服可能所費不貲。不只那樣,這些所有的新衣服也是龐大的資源浪費。但要是我們有能跟著孩子一起長大的童裝呢?

 

A young engineer named Ryan Yasin has developed a new type of material with special folds that allow it to expand and contract. With his company, Petit Pli, he's used it to make clothing that fits children from 6 to 36 months old. Aside from being an economical choice, Yasin's clothes are also wind- and rainproof, and they can be machine washed like regular clothing without losing their folds.

一位名叫萊恩.亞辛的年輕工程師發展出一種有特殊皺摺的新材質,使其可以伸縮自如。他利用自己的Petit Pli公司來製造六個月到三歲兒童都可以穿的服飾。亞辛的童裝除了是個經濟實惠的選擇,也可防風防水,而且可以像一般衣物一樣機洗而不會失去皺摺。

 

Ultimately, Yasin hopes that his clothing will serve as a way to reduce the harm caused by the world's obsession with fast fashion. "Children are used outgrowing their clothes, but it doesn't have to be like that, " he says. "We can be more resourceful."

最終,亞辛希望他的服飾可以提供一種方式來減少世人因執迷快速時尚而造成的傷害。他說:「兒童習慣長大就不穿穿不下的衣服,但不一定非得要這樣。我們可以找到更多解決的方法。」
