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

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.

We are selling recycling plastic that is used to craft abstract jewellery and accessories. Our shop is currently closed but we will be coming back soon.
