Body, mind, things, knowledge, skills, stories, structure, individuals.

The satisfying and resourceful practices associated with using clothes – the ‘craft of use’ – aim to challenge the dependency of the fashion industry on increasing material throughput and to propose alternatives based on sustained attention to tending and using garments not just creating or buying them. After all, owning a garment, does not mean we know how to use it. The craft of use’s goal is to change our garment-related visions, ideas, habits, skills and stories to be shaped by our capabilities, experiences and achievements as well as our commodities.
