image.jpgas #FashionRevolution week comes to an end, I’m putting the finishing touches to a small collection.

It’s to highlight the problems ‘fast fashion’ has. From the 300,000 tonnes of textiles thrown away each year (U.K.) to the working conditions of those who manufacture your ‘3 for £5’ tea-shirts and I’ve not even gone to the resources used!

The collection, launching on May 1st is using vintage and preloved textiles and a method of embroidery based on a traditional Japanese sashiko stitch.
