Loved Clothes Last How the Joy of Rewearing and Repairing Your Clothes Can Be a Revolutionary Act
Running out of space for the clothes you can’t stop buying? Curious about how you can make a difference to the environmental challenges our planet faces? Join Orsola’s care revolution and learn to make the clothes you love, last longer.
This book will equip you with a myriad of ways to mend, rewear and breathe new life into your wardrobe to achieve a more sustainable lifestyle. By teaching you to scrutinise your shopping habits and make sustainable purchases, she will inspire you to buy better, care more and reduce your carbon footprint by simply making your loved clothes last longer.
Following Orsola’s practical tips to lavish care and attention on the clothes you already own will not only have a positive environmental impact, but will be personally rewarding too: hand wash, steam and spot clean your clothes, air dry instead of tumble drying, or revive your clothes by sewing or crocheting.
Fast fashion leaves behind a trail of human and environmental exploitation. Our wardrobes don’t have to be the finish line; they can be a starting point. We can all care, repair and rewear. Do you accept the challenge?
