Everything You Throw Away Has To Go Somewhere
The scale of the challenge to manage waste textiles and clothing in New Zealand, and indeed in every country on the planet, is immense.
I am also developing a Conscious Wardrobe Clinic
that will be presented over two days at Sustainability Trust in Wellington later this year.
We will be addressing the barriers that prevent our clothes from being on high rotation in our wardrobes
do clothes fit
are they laundered sustainably
do they need mending or repair
how can items be restyled, updated or repurposed to make them desirable again
The skills needed to maintain desirable and wearable clothes are diverse and include design, cutting, piecing, sewing, creative visible mending and laundering.
