Let’s talk sustainability…
I’ve been speaking recently over on my social media about what sustainability means to me and why I’m so passionate about why I do what I do in my business.
It’s important to me to get the message across that Born to Thread is all about sustainable clothing.
I want people to start to invest in good clothing as fast fashion is having a huge impact on our environment and people’s physical lives, it’s shocking.
This isn’t just a recent thing it has been happening for years, recently I’ve reading a few articles about what’s happening and have also watched the very powerful documentary on the BBC by Stacey Dooley – Fashions dirty secret (a must if you want to learn more)
I have always been aware of this as we learnt about a few things at university, but this documentary definitely opened my eyes to how disgusting, wasteful and the harmful effect it is causing.
This is why I am so proud of my business been built on sustainable clothing. I try my hardest not to waste and everything you see on my website is made by my fair hands and only me, well maybe a little hand from my mum when things get busy! But you won’t find any major big factories here.
Born to Thread is all about slow fashion and creating a brand that people invest in rather than throw away.
When you shop well and support independent brands it makes the experience so much more memorable and when you think about it you are actually buying a piece of art that somebody has created just for you.
So please have a little think today, have a read of the articles and start to make a change.
It will be so worth it in the end.
