Description

Slow Clothing presents a compelling case for why we need to change the way we dress, - to live lightly on Earth through the everyday practice of how we wear and care for our clothes.

In an era dominated by passive consumption of cheap and synthetic fashion, Jane Milburn arrived at the Slow Clothing philosophy by refashioning garments in her wardrobe to provide meaning and story.

Jane tells her journey to Slow Clothing and provides ideas for you to easily implement.

Slow Clothing reflects our own style and spirit, independent of fashion cycles. We buy thoughtfully, gain skills, and care for what we wear as an embodiment of ourselves. We - the wearers - become original, authentic and resourceful. We believe secondhand is the new organic and mending is good for the soul. In return, we are liberated and satisfied.

Slow Clothing brings wholeness through living simply, creatively and fairly.
