Our Story

 

The textile business gained traction during the Industrial Revolution in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, when machines began to produce more material at a far faster rate than traditional weaving (by hand). This industry grew to become the most significant source of revenue.

What we currently refer to as "fast fashion" underwent a significant transformation in the twenty-first century. The success of high-street companies in the early 2000s drove sales even further, and the introduction of internet shopping accelerated sales even more. Since everyone wants to stay on top of the latest trends while spending as little money as possible, fast fashion businesses are becoming more successful by the day. 

Companies may offer ready-to-wear clothing for near to nothing by outsourcing to manufacturers that rely on low-wage labour. It may be beneficial to our pockets, but it has a negative influence on the environment and people's lives. Zara, Forever 21, and Shein are examples of ‘fast fashion' apparel shops that provide inexpensive and stylish clothing. According to the United Nations Environment Programme, the fashion sector consumes the second-largest amount of water and emits 8-10% of global carbon emissions, which is more than all international flights and marine shipping combined.

 

The Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh in 2013 is a direct example of when business is placed over humanity, since 1,134 people died as a result of being compelled to work in a dangerous environment. People all across the world were stunned by the incident, and many wondered where their garments came from.

We feel that pre-loved clothes are the way to go as a secondhand and vintage retailer. The constant demand for new apparel is having severe negative consequences for all of us and mother earth herself. Buying vintage clothes is a simple way to decrease our ecological footprint, it may help us appreciate our own unique styles, and it also helps to support local economies by supporting great small businesses.
