Saving Textiles

When you get asked the question...

"Please could you advise me on how to save textiles from landfill? I currently buy from charity shops/boot sales etc but wondered if there is a way to know that I can save stuff that is definitely on it’s way to a hole in the ground?"

It’s a great question and it’s really tricky to give a definitive answer. In the UK it’s quite hard to follow the route to landfill and it can be very subjective as one persons waste might be anothers cherished piece.

However when you consider that half of all charity donations (see below) end up in landfill you can see that you are making a difference just from shopping in that way.

Although I use only deadstock, vintage or preloved garments and fabrics to make The Well Worn pieces I’m looking into how I can get closer working relationship with landfill sites to reuse the textiles which are at the point of going into landfill.

But I think ultimately everytime we make the concious descision to buy 'not new' we are having an impact.
