Piles of textile waste

Revamp, Repair, Repurpose…

Textile and clothing waste is a huge problem for the health and wellbeing of the whole planet

We are an inclusive network of people and enterprises based in and around Frome in Somerset whose focus and priority is about addressing clothing and textile reuse (rescue) and sustainability (repurposing, recycling).

We are a group of makers and researchers.

We make, stitch, knit, weave, repair, re-purpose and remake.

We research local and global textile sustainability issues.
