Reusing Textiles: Waste to Wear

'The 'Reusing Textiles' resource explores how fast fashion has created a throwaway culture, with over one million tonnes of textiles thrown away in the UK each year. The resource then encourages students to recycle and reuse their old unwanted textiles and think about how these can be redesigned into something new and exciting!
