i have a short:long piece in this new magazine by Sustainable Fashion Scotland (great community organisation). it meditates on the resonances of making and repairing clothing.

  1. Thanks for flagging up this piece Rhian – I valued the reminder that biodegradable-polyester blends have rationales behind them (as you say, making the thread longer and more sturdy) as well as downsides! I’m also intrigued to wonder how you go about darning a rainbow jumper like that…

    Hope all’s well with you! Helen


    1. Thanks Helen! Yes, it’s difficult — synthetic fibres do have purpose, and can make life easier when life is hard to juggle anyway. So it’s an up and down.. Yes, I wonder how to go about darning a rainbow jumper too, ha! I’ll have to do a ‘visible mend’ I think 😉 Thanks for reading, so nice to hear you enjoyed this 🙂
