Clothing care is an important part of the conscious fashion journey.
Inexpensive fashion has reduced the incentive to handle a piece with care, let alone repair or mend that garment, but we know that this approach is wreaking havoc on our planet.
So instead of valuing clothes at their face value — the price tag — a truly sustainable approach to fashion involves shifting our mindset to caring for all of the clothing we’ve brought into our lives. (This applies even to the clothing that we no longer want — it’s important to be mindful of how you’re discarding unwanted garments too!)
Taking some level of responsibility for each and every garment extends their life, keeps our clothing out of the landfill, and helps us develop a deeper appreciation — and therefore, greater contentment overall — with our clothing.
