We came up with the intention of rethinking the existing model and changing the paradigm of the fashion industry.
The concept is simple: rescue clothes that were forgotten, that would end up in a landfill or a container, but that still had some potential, and turn them into new pieces.
We want to inspire the public to reuse used clothes in a creative way, by valorising the raw material, and consequently, the re-created piece, seeing the transformation as a preventive method of waste.
Textiles have a huge ecological footprint and conventional ways of reusing and recycling textiles are still not enough. Therefore, our philosophy is based on reuse and collaborative action, valuing the material but also who makes it, and making the consumer aware of all these issues, so that we can contribute to the construction of an environmentally and ethically more sustainable society.

Themed Workshops: Activities open to the general public with the aim of inspiring and empowering them to give a new life to clothes they no longer wear by taking only one type of garment (example: transforming jeans).
