Patagonia Worn Wear - comes to Up and Under in Cardiff
Extending the life of our
clothing is the single most important thing we can do to lower our impact on
on a mission to encourage people
to think differently about their clothing and to help make their clothes last a
lifetime. At each stop, they’ll be offering free repairs on busted zippers, rips,
tears, buttons, pulls and more – in addition to teaching people how to fix
their own gear.
Patagonia’s Worn Wear program was created in 2013 as a way
to encourage people to take good care of their gear, washing and repairing as
needed. It’s an extension of a philosophy Patagonia has held for more than 40
years. Worn Wear aims to keep clothing, regardless of brand, in circulation for
as long as possible. When it’s time for a replacement, we want you to invest in
something that lasts.
The Worn Wear mobile repair van is equipped
with an industrial sewing machine and seamstress and will be open to anyone who
brings in a garment in need of repair, regardless of brand. The tour will aim
to educate visitors about the philosophy behind Patagonia’s Worn Wear program.
Lisa from Patagonia said "We’re excited about bringing Worn
Wear to Cardiff in association with Up & Under on Sunday 28th
May from 10am – 4pm. Our Worn Wear team can fix
approx. 20 garments per day, and all repairs are made on a first come first
served basis with one repair per person. So it’s always good to get to the van
