    I’m Rachel Wintz, a Sociologist from Anchorage, Alaska. I’m working on a proposal to study and report on the sustainable fashion industry, profiling sustainable innovations within the industry and looking toward the future of the fashion industry and its impact around the globe on social, economic, and environmental factors.

    I’d like to interview people in all sorts of positions within the fashion industry -from the farm to the factory to the shop. If the proposal is funded, I will be submitting reports to be disseminated by either the National Geographic or the Institute of Current World Affairs. If you’re available for an interview about your work in the sustainable fashion industry or perhaps would like to do a multimedia project about your work, please contact me at

   Additionally, if you have information or resources you can refer me to, I’m happy to receive any expertise you have to share with me about the sustainable fashion industry. Your collaboration is much appreciated and will greatly enhance my understanding of the sustainable fashion industry.

   If you’d like to take a look at my work, please visit my portfolio:

Thank you,

Rachel Wintz

Hello! Looking for some supplies for my MA Fashion and the Environment collection. It's using authenticity, transparency, design for disassembly, mindfulness of waste and craftsmanship as the key principles of design practice and method of communicating certain issues/ideals.

I'm using the north east of England, where I'm from as the base inspiration so all of my materials must evoke a feeling of that area. SO, I call up on you.

Does anyone have any of these things going spare/know where I can get them/have suppliers/could sponsor me:

-tarpaulin (rubberised cotton sheeting variety) & PVC (reclaimed)
-beads of all glass, ceramic, acrylic, crystal sort
-rope, man made & natural
-cord, cotton
-wool tops (for felting)
-neoprene foam sheet
-army blankets
-linen inc. tablecloths

Thank you!!!

Hi all - just want to put it out there that I am always looking for fabric to recycle/upclycle - particularly light denim/chambray but any natural cottons/natural fabrics can always be used.


We work with two womens groups in Uganda and produce children's wear, toys and accessories as well as run sewing workshops etc in the UK all to raise money to train more women and support orphaned children in their care. think of us if you have anything you think we can make use of. Have a great day.

Hello everyone,

Maybe someone has some unused clothes, fabrics or material scraps, something not usable that can be reused.

I am based in west London

thank you

ThriftyCOUTURE is looking for end of line stock, material scraps and anything that we can use to help build our recycled fashion line. We are a social enterprise run by young entrepreneurs who will deliver training for unemployed young residents of inner city London. Any help would be welcomed. 

Many thanks,

Hi Rebecca, you could try donating it to LMB textile recycling as they also take fabrics for reprocessing.
