When it comes to textiles and clothing, people perceive that manufacturing clothes is a one way route. Clothes are manufactured, sold, worn out and thrown away. This conception is fast changing as a result of the increase in public awareness with regards recycling clothes. High fashion and corporate greed have both contributed to this notion. Consumers in developed countries have an unending appetite for fast fashion and it is us who need to change.

Clothes recycling are not new to the world. Unlike manufacturing, recycling clothes is usually undertaken manually.
