Today’s Solutions: May 22, 2024

These days, the way you dress can be a stark environment statement. In response to the ubiquity of fast fashion and a growing consciousness about the ‘true cost’ of the garment industry, people are beginning to come up with fashionable, innovative ways to rebel against today’s consumerist society.

Take for example sashiko – a Japanese visible mending technique involving a running stitch and geometric patterns, which allows crafters to eschew fast fashion and turn rips and tears into art.

Instead of seeing clothes as disposable, visible mending values sustainability and suggests a different way of relating to our clothes, inspiring us to always look for ways to repurpose what we already have.
