Do your clothes have an after life?

p1.jpg

Yes they do and "Upcycling " is the answer! The term is used to define the process or the art of reusing old clothes or worn out items to create new garments or items. In a nutshell, it means reusing your old stuff in a more creative manner. Thus, it is a new wave of sustainable fashion (eco-fashion, to be precise!) that is aimed at reducing clothing waste. It requires tremendous amount of creativity to churn out flashy wearable items from old and used ones. The trend is catching up in the contemporary times, creating a "need" for new breed of fashion designers. The resulting creations are in high demand in college clothes swap parties and among the others who support efforts at sustainability. As an example, users love finger-less gloves that could be created from upcycling old woolen jumpers or sweaters.
