Clothing Repair Workshop

April 1 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm PDT

SD Fixit Clinic is partnering with Sophie founder of Positive Phee to host a Clothing Repair Workshop.

​​Sophie, founder of “Positive Phee” spent a decade in the fashion industry in London, England where she is originally from. Seeing a gap in the market for truly ethical fashion Positive Phee was born. Positive Phee offers events & services that promote circular fashion, giving a new life to the clothes donated and stopping them from going to landfill. In addition, Positive Phee also works with fellow Fashion Designers who specialize in Upcycling to bring you unique and wearable art. These one of a kind pieces are created from items that would otherwise be headed to landfill so you can feel extra positive about your purchase.

Did you know….

The Fashion Industry is the Second largest contributor to global pollution! Fashion production makes up 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions, dries up water sources, and pollutes rivers and streams. What’s more, 85% of all textiles go to the dump each year (UNECE, 2018), and washing some types of clothes sends a significant amount of microplastics into the ocean. [Source]

By mending and repairing your clothing, you are making sure that you can wear it for longer, which means you are slowing down how much you consume and making sure that less goes to waste.

*This event is sponsored by the City of Carlsbad Sustainable Material Department. You must sign up in advance to bring your chosen item to mend and contact Sophie more than 48 hours before the event to confirm that your chosen item is suitable.
