Brand new shop now open in Chippenham!  

Our shop sells preloved clothes for teens and young adults and it’s a place to inspire people to rethink fashion. We are running free mending workshops where you can get creative and personalise your own clothes. 

Our mission is to help young people re-fashion and mend their clothing in order to help reduce textile waste so that the fashion industry will be more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

To become part of this very exciting project, you can donate your clothing, volunteer, shop at their shop and join their workshops.
