Objective of the workshop:

During this 2 hour in-person workshop, teens & adults 'll learn how to darn holes and use one of our original patterns to cover your tracks. All you need to bring with you is a piece of clothing to revamp (t-shirt, sweatshirt, jeans, worn out children's clothes...) with a stain or hole of 2x2cm or smaller. Since, we believe in having fun while learning, we offer this workshop as a Coffee Morning - Coffee on us :) -   at some cool Cafes in Dubai!

Yes4us 4-step approach:

 Awareness:

  • Every year the fashion industry uses 93 billion cubic meters of water — enough to meet the consumption needs of five million people.
  • Around 20% of wastewater worldwide comes from fabric dyeing and treatment.
  • Of the total fiber input used for clothing, 87% is incinerated or disposed of in a landfill.
  • With current demographic and lifestyle patterns, it is estimated that more than half of fast fashion produced is disposed of in under a year”
  • The fashion industry is responsible for 10% of annual global carbon emissions, more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined. At this pace, the fashion industry’s greenhouse gas emissions will surge more than  50 % by 2030.

Solution:

The most sustainable garment is the one that’s already in your closet:

We all have a favorite old t-shirt or pair of jeans that we can't bear to throw out despite its small holes or stains - jazz up your hand-me-downs or breathe new life into old favorites with our Visible Mending workshops

 Impact:

  • Avoid sending more clothes to landfills

Reward:

  • Customize your clothes to add more style and flair, while learning a new skill, to use anytime and create more impact
