Hand Me Up

The average American doesn't wear 80% of what is in their closet. The public is invited to bring (or mail) clothes they don't wear and with the help of old world techniques, such as hand embroidery, hand stitching, hand painting, natural dyeing, we transform them into "new", one-of-a-kind pieces. As clients fall back in love with their existing clothes, their life span is prolonged and together we become part of a circular economy, where nothing ends up in the landfills. Inspired to streamline your closet?

Participate with your own clothes and we will apply these Custom Mending techniques to bring them back to life.

This event is part of the Transport and Infrastructure, Finance, Investment and Jobs, Nature and Science, Youth, Public Mobilization and Justice, and Climate Impacts and Adaptation programs.
