AFRAYED Upcycling creates unique clothing and accessories using materials that already exist on the planet.

The one gal in charge of sourcing materials, designing patterns, marketing, sewing and packing is me, Scarlett. I've been sewing since I was 14 years old and have always been passionate about the effects of fashion on our planet.

I started this small business during lockdown! After travelling for 5 months and then being sent home due to COVID19 for lockdown, I was desperate to get back to sewing after such a long break. I went to order fabric online however lockdown has caused a 4 week delay on this. I took it upon myself to cut up some of my mum's old clothing (with her consent of course!!) and made a patchwork jumpsuit. I posted this on a few Facebook groups and the rest is history...
- This is the jumpsuit from June 2020! ✨
Here are some facts on textile waste:

❌ We have enough clothing to dress the next 7 generations.

❌ The United Kingdom alone produces 206.456 tonnes of textile waste in a year.

❌ Globally just 12% of the material used for clothing ends up being recycled.

These facts are astounding and scary.

Choose your fabric and garment or send in your materials to make something truly special and unique!

Let's stop sending textile to landfill, and upcycle it into something beautiful.
