Everyone Needs Pockets!
Revamp, repair, repurpose.
We are an inclusive network of people and enterprises whose focus and priority is about addressing clothing and textile reuse (rescue) and sustainability (repurposing, recycling).
We are a group of makers and researchers.
We make, stitch, knit, weave, repair, repurpose and remake.
We research local and global textile sustainability issues.
What we’re about:
Textile reuse and repair
Carbon emission reduction
Raising awareness of the harm of the clothing and textile industry and textile waste
Mental health and wellbeing by making and repurposing textiles
Gathering as a social and sharing network
Creating connections and solutions
Support individual and group ideas and projects
We meet on the second Friday of the month at Future Shed.
