FASHION RECYCLE

I believe that a dress can be used for many years because if it is washed at a cold temperature the fabric does not wear out and therefore will keep for a long time. 
I think that always buying new clothes can contribute to a disproportionate use of water but many people don't know it. Also after so many years sometimes certain styles come back into fashion. 
I have some of my mother's dresses from the 70s and 80s that have come back into fashion and this has made them very current. But you have to wash in the washing machine at a cold temperature to preserve the colors and also the quality of the fabric.
Groups of people can also be created, on social networks, in which to offer their own clothes, to be exchanged or given to those who can transform them into something new, such as bags, jewels, puppets, etc... It is nice to also have a reason to meet, to share the clothes that you may not be able to keep in the closet anymore because they have become too many. I believe that you can have creative and interesting meetings with people who do creative recycling and can help you give away your used clothes, if you really want to throw them away. So if any of you are on social media you can launch this initiative which I believe could help many people.
These are some exemples for recycling jeans:


If some of you are good at sewing, creating objects with fabric, if someone wants to offer to receive clothes to transform them, create groups to create new things using recycled fabrics, I'm happy if you meet to create these things. Know that this initiative is very important and you will help save a lot of water, which is used to create new clothes.
If there are people who do DIY with fabrics we can send them our clothes and they can create new things and thus we avoid creating other waste but they will use the clothes that you no longer wear to create beautiful objects.

FEMALE CRAFTMANSHIP

It is very nice to see that these young women are still passionate about sewing. I only sew with needle and thread, so as not to consume electricity, and for me it is just a hobby, I only make bags, because I am not able to make clothes. I believe that women’s craftsmanship is very important and it would be very nice if they taught it in schools, both to boys and girls.
I admire people who sew clothes. I recently noticed that the clothes that the shops sell are low in residue and of poor quality. After a few washes they become very bad and come off immediately. Even branded clothes and bags are badly sewn, they become horrible, misshapen and the zippers are destroyed quickly. We can only see beautiful clothes at fashion shows and in designer shops. So fashion is only for a very wealthy group of people. I find it nice to be able to create clothes by yourself and to be able to choose but now there are not many fabrics. The Italian textile industry is in crisis and unfortunately from China and India no longer beautiful fabrics arrive but poor materials. So there are no fabric shops either. My mother bought many fabrics to sew beautiful clothes for clients and for us daughters. I think it's nice to be able to sew baby clothes too or sew dolls to give to poor children.
There are a lot of people who sew, who knit, crochet, who do patchwork and macrame and embroidery. All of these people need to be valued. So we look for their creations on the sites and buy beautiful things created by people who have a lot of imagination and the patience to create masterpieces.
I am an animal activist and I don’t buy real leather bags or even leather shoes. I love cloth bags and cloth shoes. I believe we have to protect the calves and all the animals that are killed for their skins and furs. I don’t like furs and I don’t like animals being killed for fashion reasons.
