Slow Friday: Positive Alternatives to Shopping This Black Friday

Slow Friday: Positive Alternatives to Shopping This Black Friday

We've joined the Fashion Revolution campaign this year and abstaining from slashing our prices over cyber weekend. Instead, we're donating 5% of sales to the cause. 

We're aiming to help reposition Black Friday as a day to reflect on the environmental and human sacrifice of over-production and over-consumption. 

We also want to give you all ideas on what to do instead of splurging the deals this weekend. We love the idea of the MUMSS guide: Mend, Upcycle, Make, Share and Swap 

Here are our top tips on how to MUMSS it this season:

Mend:

Instead of buying new all the time, why not mend what you already have. Here are a couple handy tutorials we've used over the years to mend damaged clothing items that need a second life.

Upcycle:

We exclusively use upcylced / surplus materials for our collections. You can too for your at home project. Here are a couple places to find surplus fabrics yourself!

Amo Threads

Make:

With that awesome surplus fabric you've now found, why not make a few scrunchies. Here's Megan, our Founder and Head Designer, giving you a step-by-step scrunchie tutorial.
