Welcome to the Revolution

What do I do with old clothes?  My dream has always been to keep clothing within the cycle of use until there is nothing left to use and it goes to compost.  My challenge was how to achieve that.  Well my friends you are the first to know that the Revolution has arrived.

Revolution is my “never let it die” programme
What do I do with old Clothes?

When you buy a textile from me, clothing, accessories, homeware it will come with a guarantee that when you no longer want it, for whatever reason.  I will take it back and in return offer you a discount against a future purchase.  You are of course welcome to send the item to a charity shop, a friend or sell it  but if it doesn’t work for you anymore and you don’t want to sell or pass on, send it back.

three grades of return

All you have to do is send me a photograph of the item in question, highlighting any wear and tear or stains (stay with me!) and I will give you a grade.  You are free to return to me or take it elsewhere.

10% Discount

15% Discount

20% Discount

Now, I want to encourage you to wear your clothes, to use them, to love them and to wear them again and again.  Remember I am all about slow and delicious fashion not fast and indigestion inducing fashion.  So the more worn, the more loved the items the higher the discount.    Of course, I have to trust that people won’t pour a glass of red wine down the front with an eye to a better discount.  But I do, because if you are reading this you are already buying into that circular dream.

Once returned I will do one of the following with it:

  1. Repair/Reprint 
  2. Dismantle.  Either I, or a small network of sewers will use the buttons and zips, and the fabric to  make new items
  3. Where the fabric is beyond use to make anything substantial it will be torn into rags and turned into rag wreathes and rag bunting.

All remade items will be sold under the Revolution Line and 10% of all sale price will go to Whittle Dene CIC.
