The easiest way to be sustainable is to look after what we already have.
Often leading an ethical lifestyle and the slow fashion movement can be overwhelming and expensive. Not everyone can afford well made sustainable clothing that supports garment workers. Not everyone has available thrift stores. Not everyone can source ethical or second hand clothing in their size or style. Not everyone has the time to find alternatives or to mend what they have.
It’s essential that this movement is inclusive of everybody, no matter what background. No one should be ridiculed for buying fast fashion if they don’t have an alternative. ...
The sheer amount that we buy and how we care for it has a huge impact on the environment and garment workers. Its important that we only buy what we need and love, treat our clothing correctly with care, not over washing, and repairing when ever possible.
Rather than sending an item to landfill as soon as it is worn mending our clothes adds value in time, creativity and a new lease of life. Making each garment truly unique with its own story. ...
I still have some mending tutorials from #mendwithme and there is a huge amount of support and how-to guides here on Instagram and online from the #visiblemending community.
Do you have a garment that you have repaired or that you have taken to be fixed by a local seamstress or tailor? I would love to know its story.
Happy Earth Day and a very happy Fashion Revolution Week!🎉
It’s not an exaggeration for me to say that @gretathunberg has inspired me more than any other human to work on saving our planet and raising awareness of the climate crisis.
This quote of hers says everything. Our house is on fire and we have to act. I’ve been very moved by @extinctionrebellion in London this last week and their work as a movement that shows how we can be powerful and make our voices heard.
For me it’s @fash_rev week every week, but I want to point out the huge impacts of the fashion industry when it comes to the environment.
Fast fashion is enormously wasteful. It uses precious resources from the Earth that we take for granted, water, land, oil, people and animals as though they are completely disposable. Then it encourages you to buy more than you can ever wear and throw excessive amounts into landfill when you get bored.
We are privileged to not live with the consequences of what fashion is doing to the planet. Who cares about the poisoned rivers in Bangladesh, China and Indonesia? The drought caused by cotton farming at sites such as the Aral Sea? The illnesses caused by pesticides in communities that can’t afford adequate health care? The devastation of oil mining for our polyester? The clothing sent to East Africa that we don’t have space for in our Western landfills?
It’s essential for fashion to move to a circular economy where resources are valued and re-used. We need to use non-toxic chemicals, materials and processes that will stop poisoning the Earth, people and our wildlife.
It’s not all doom and gloom, there are many ways that we can be mindful when it comes to fashion but the facts need to be heard and taken seriously.
We can all start by asking #whomademyclothes and demanding transparency from the brands we love. We need to know more about where each garment has come from, how it was made and who by.

Easter holiday has been a lot more busy than we are used to since we are a family of four - but also a lot of fun 💛
I find that getting out of the house is the best way to relax a bit.

Happy Earth Day 🌏 I ran out of little mailers so I decided to make my own out of scrap paper. When I set aside scraps that I'd otherwise throw away, it encourages me to think up ways to use them and sparks creativity, along with keeping more trash out of the landfill! Win win. In honor of Earth day I'm offering 15% off of EVERYTHING in my shop today. Link in bio to shop around for sustainable closet staples 🌿

I may become an indigo addict. 💕 What a great springtime tradition, renewing old and stained white clothing with this natural dye. Of course I knew when I made this cream colored, silk noil #hinterlanddress , that it would eventually get stained and need a color refresh. Couldn't be happier with how it turned out! Such a fun time taking an indigo + shibori workshop from @rivtak with my boys. .
