Fashion Revolution Week 2021 is coming up on 19th-24th April, marking eight years since the tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh that killed over 1100 fast fashion garment workers. This shocking event highlighted fashions dirty little big secret, and begged the question #WhoMadeMyClothes?
Fashion Revolution week shines a light on the issues the industry still faces and demands more transparency throughout fashion brands' supply chains. It’s also a time to celebrate the creativity of our community, exploring more innovative and sustainable solutions…
You’re invited to join the revolution with us this year at our St Peters factory to see where our Tees are made and get your craft on at one of our DIY Zero Waste Workshops sessions. We’ll be hosting five 2hr workshops over the weekend to sew your own Zero Waste Scarf or Tote, or even knit your own beanie out of our Zero Waste Yarns, all up-cycled from off-cut scraps from our Magic Fit® T-shirt production.
You’ll walk away with your very own one-of-a-kind garment, ethically made by you with all proceeds going towards Fashion Revolutions continued work.

JOIN THE REVOLUTION
You don’t need to be a pro-sewer or crocheter to join in the crafty fun - although some experience will help, we’re keeping numbers strictly limited to 10 per class to ensure you have a dedicated machine and one-on-one time with our masterful instructors.
All the materials you need are included in the price of the workshop ticket, so the only thing you can possibly be limited by is that imagination of yours! All ticket proceeds will go towards Fashion Revolution to continue their incredible advocacy work around the world - so you can craft for a cause.
