Sustainable fashion through clothing repair

文字-A A +A

REstoRE teaches people how to transform old clothes into wearable clothes. Between the wearing and discarding of clothes, a vital link seems to have been forgotten - maintenance and repair. REstoRE aims to raise awareness about the importance of repairing and maintaining clothing.

Learning to repair clothes can reduce people’s habit of over-purchasing. With the right skills, old clothes can be revamped into new styles to extend their life cycle, eliminating the wasteful practice of discarding outdated items of clothing. This is one way of reducing the rampant consumerism responsible for serious resource depletion.

In addition to modifying and remanufacturing to increase the lifespan of clothes, before purchasing, consumers should also bear in mind the waste of resources and environmental impact caused by the fashion industry. With proper maintenance, we can use each piece of clothing to its fullest and take one step closer to a sustainable world where ‘recycle and reuse’ is a mantra everyone lives by.

推廣衣物修繕 力行永續時尚

舊衣改造是教大家怎麼樣把舊的衣服改造成可以再使用的作品,但是在衣服的穿到丟中間,有很長一塊被遺落了的環節叫做保養跟修繕,這也是舊與新織計畫最早的初衷,希望能夠喚起民眾對服飾修繕跟保養的重視。

衣物修繕可以改善民眾過度購買的消費習慣,在妥善的保養下,舊衣可以透過修改,重新打造為新的款式,延續其生命週期,使民眾不再因款式過時而丟棄它們,進而減少購買快時尚衣物所造成的資源浪費。

除了透過修改再製來延續舊衣生命。消費者也可以將製衣背後所蘊含的資源浪費與環境汙染納入購買考量,並且完整做到對衣物的妥善保養,讓每件衣物發揮其價值,達到友善環境、減廢再生的永續概念。
