Veja is a French label of ecological trainers made in Brazil respecting the fundamental rights of workers. Veja was first launched in France in 2004. Since its creation, the brand has experienced rapid growth in Europe and has been endorsed by the most selective fashion stores and by numerous fashion magazines.

We at Worn Again have set out the ambitious vision of encouraging a shift in manufacturing back to the UK by moving our production of upcycled products close to home after our beginnings in China and later to Portugal.
After an enlightening journey visiting what used to be a thriving hub of manufacturing in the UK, in Coventry and Manchester, I'm left musing the following and pondering solutions...

Over the last years there has been a relative rush of books on eco and ethical fashion published across the globe. We think this is an excellent indicator of the public’s awareness of how, what, where and whom produced the clothes in our closets.
Sustainable fashion is fashion that is designed to be environmentally friendly. Fashion designers have recently adopted the idea of sustainability, using more environmentally-friendly materials and methods in clothing… Continue

On the Today programme on BBC Radio 4 this morning (31.03.09), Stuart Rose the chief executive of Marks & Spencers, gave an interesting insight to what he felt a beneficial consequence of the current economic climate could be. He expressed the belief that the recession would herald the end of the era of disposability, that customers were no longer satisfied with cheap, throwaway fashion.
