Clothes made from recycled materials

London Fashion Week has featured two designers, Vin and Omi,  who say their clothes are made from plastic bottles and sustainable wool. They believe it’s almost impossible for low-cost high street clothes to be ethical.

 

Designers Vin and Omi have developed 11 eco-textiles including leathers made from skins of chestnuts and fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles.

 

During 2016, in the UK we bought 1.13 million tonnes of clothing but these clothes are only intended to be kept for three years on average. Therefore Vin and Omi are trying new ways of recycling what they’ve already made. Customers can send items back to the designers when they no longer need it, the designers will reuse it in a future collection and the customers get a discount off the next item they buy.

 

Designer Omi believes its difficult for high street retailers to be ethical if they are producing low-cost clothes and shipping them world wide.
