Fabric Fibres

When it comes to buying clothing consciously, the fibre which the fabric is made from has an important role to play. While we cannot always be sure of the source, if it was ethically and sustainably sourced, we can choose fibres that align better with our values.  This is an intro to fibres that will…

Reflecting on Fashion Revolution Week 2020

And just like that, Fashion Revolution Week 2020 has come and gone! It was the first time that Fashion Revolution week was entirely online, which meant that while we all stayed at home, we were able to (virtually) travel to studios, workshops, panels, and talks around the world. Fashion Revolution began 7 years ago, with…
