rags to riches textile upcycling podcast ~ ep.014

We are celebrating this week!

Together, we have created a highly visible and super-creative, global MOVEMENT using, er actually RE-using discarded clothing, manufacturers’ waste and other fabrics diverted from the landfill.  

Three cheers for us!

Have you noticed the beautiful mushrooming of conscientious designers adding heaps of value to textile waste to create new makes? Are you one of them?

How about the vintage and thrift fashion bloooom?Whether you wear vintage or thrift your fashions… Or curate and sell vintage…

You guys, the world is changing and, I dare say, we, as textile upcyclers, recyclers, and re-users are leading the way!  

Offering our customers opportunities to change the way they consume textiles inspires other lifestyle changes creating ripples across all aspects of our human environmental footprint, Moving toward a more sustainable existence with creativity and a positive uplift is what we are all about…..  Am I right?

Super exciting to be alive right now!

This we week we dive into actionable steps you can take to be counted as a participant in the Textile Upcycling Movement.  Voicing your concerns and challenges, and celebrating your wins and accomplishments is integral to the momentum building in this super exciting arena.  

Now is your time to step into the spotlight with your starring role addressing global textile waste with creative ingenuity...
