Jane says that we eat everyday and we get dressed everyday and that it’s now time to consider how we dress for our health. Natural fibres allow our skin to breath which is better for our health and we all know they are better for the environment.

Both Jane and I feel committed to dress for comfort rather than ‘fashion’ and live outside that narrative of conforming to what someone else says we should wear. Jane says we can just start with a needle and thread and that’s a start to making our own clothes again. I’m inspired to do just that.

“Until you make something with your own hands you don’t appreciate or value the resources, the energy and the skill that go into something that you buy.” Is a quote from Jane’s Slow Clothing book.

Jane has been accepted as a Churchill Fellow and will embark on an international study to investigate ways that hands-on up-cycling can reduce textile waste and enhance well-being.

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. I was happily surprised when Jane said this because that’s the same words I have on the back of my Kitchen Garden Teacher business card.
