Slow Fashion

It is for people who love art and wearing it.

Slow fashion is hand weaving on the floor loom with natural fibres to make clothing. This is usually a floor loom, but could also be a table loom or a frame loom. The process involves threading the warp through the loom and then the weft is woven in and out. The process is slow but the results are worth it. This is for people who are passionate about art and want to wear it.

I’ve been weaving for over a year now, and I’ve learned so much. If you’re interested in trying your hand at weaving, I highly recommend it. It’s a fun and rewarding hobby.

Most clothing fibres are made from plastic, including polyester, which will never fully decompose.

Aside from harming wildlife and emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, it behaves just like other plastics. Unlike other plastics, it is rarely recycled and breaks down into microplastics over time.
