2023 Textile Upcycling Survey

Community, Conscious Consumption

By Crispina ffrench

Textile Upcycling is not a trend. It is an exciting and growing movement to heal our environment.

Just in case you haven’t noticed, there is this magical movement gaining momentum, it is all about conscious textile consumption and YOU are a part of it. 

Fashion designers are re-styling, upcycling, recycling, and using non-traditional ‘waste’ materials to create high quality garments for self expression, durability and function.  There is a growing awareness of, and demand for, ethical production practices, supporting the planet and people employed in the textile industry..

     Whoop!  WHOOP!

Shoppers are opting for resale, thrift, handmade, recycled, upcycled, small batch, one of one, and bespoke wares nodding to individuality, durability and function.

     Can I get an AMEN???

Witnessing this shift in habit is sooo EXciTing, leaning into conscious awareness and away from excess, exploitation, fast fashion.  

The swing of our consumption paradigm toward responsible citizenry is super fresh - still wet behind the ears, and there is work involved.  

THIS my friend, is where you come in.  We are compiling some statistics to help provide value, inclusion, inspiration and know-how to propel our momentum.

It really only takes about 5 minutes to check the boxes.  With your input, we can more efficiently work toward balanced, creative, uplifting textile consumption and enjoy the ride.  Thanks in advance, here is a link to our survey.
