Patching up our environment

3girls Restitch aims to reduce the environmental impact of mass production and transportation of clothing around the world by using material already at hand. Their motto is 'recut, restitch, reuse'; adult clothing is turned into truly unique children's clothing.  Restitch uses corduroy and cotton because both are hard wearing and wash well.  The designs include beautiful pinafore dresses (pictured) and prices range from £25 to £35.  All products are made in England.

Their collection is for children aged 3 months to 3 years. Plus you can send you favourite work shirt and get your child a bespoke garment.  While this may seem like an innovation, its just a hark back to the old 'make do and mend' idea. Restitch is currently available at Equa, London and Big Blue Sky, Norfolk but their site will be transactional from July. [Ella]
