KPCouturé 

Our very own fashion brand. It grew out of our Climate Challenge Funded project in 2017. 

Our Story

It's main aim is to diversify the conversations around sustainability through upcycling workshops in the community. Teaching mending and upcycling skills.

We also make jewellery and accessories from the plastic waste in the building to raise money that can be reinvested into the Kinning Park Complex.

The process of jewellery making

Some of the ways we make jewellery from plastic. We want to keep turning single use plastic into accessories until it's no longer available.

Creative Opportunity

We have been able to provide opportunities for young designers to work with us and learn the process of repurposing plastic into beautiful jewellery. 

 

Currently, KPCouturé is run on a voluntary basis without funding but we are looking at the next steps to take.
We still welcome interest to partner on workshops and events so please get in touch if you'd like to work
with us.
