Everyone Needs Pockets Textile Reuse Network

Revamp, Repair, Repurpose

We are an inclusive network of 100+ 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.

Everyone Needs Pockets usually meets on the second Friday of the month at Future Shed. Please book in so we know you’re coming!
