Inspiration.

So, while looking into my own route into clothing upcycling, i stumbled across this lovely bunch who agreed to let me have a nose around their lovely Leeds based studio.

It was really inspiring to see the dedication to sourcing local products and spreading a ‘mend and make do’ attitude, alongside awareness of where our clothing comes from. Running workshops and clothes exchanges, Lizzie and the team create fashion forward,  sustianable sources of clothing, avoiding all the waste i hate so much.

Their resulting product is pretty outstanding too, and not your typical felty, knitty green clothing. You can see their store here: http://www.antiformonline.co.uk/

It’s well worth a look, i want most of the things on there…especially one of these badass jumpers.
