Sew it Again is a project of Textile Beat, a social enterprise/small business inspiring the upcycling of natural fibres, fabric and textured objects … and following the heart on a creative journey by working with integrity, creativity and purpose. Textile Beat believes in dress with conscience and clothes with a good story to tell. #dresswithconscience #dresswithstory
The Textile Beat philosophy aligns with The Earth Charter which recognises the global environment has finite resources. It specifically relates to ecological integrity as outlined in Principle 7a: Reduce, reuse, recycle the materials used in production and consumption systems.
It was established in 2013 by agricultural scientist and communications consultant Jane Milburn in Brisbane, Australia, to value post-consumer natural fibre resources and tap into potential opportunities to repurpose existing garments for pleasure, reward and sustainability.
