Jo Andrews started the Haptic and Hue podcast in 2020 to tell the story of the hidden hands behind textiles and the way in which they are a detective story you can hold. In season 2, Jo sets out to explore the way in which cloth expresses our deepest feelings, from sorrow to joy, from warmth to pain. Each episode will look at a different feeling and unravel its story in fabric, thinking about different cultures and traditions to help us do that. In this podcast you'll also hear how you can contribute to the development of Series 3.
Fashion Revolution Week is the time when we come together as a global community to create a better fashion industry. It centres around the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1,138 people and injured many more on 24 April 2013. This year, as we mark 8 years since the tragedy, Fashion Revolution Week will focus on the interconnectedness of human rights and the rights of nature. Our campaign will amplify unheard voices across the fashion supply chain and harness the creativity of our community to explore innovative and interconnected solutions. We’ve published various podcasts where the community has taken action to keep textile workers safe and paid for their work. This podcast was produced to showcase Ethical Clothing Australia's 10 year anniversary. Their first and only week focused on ethically accredited Australian manufacturers and locally-made textiles, clothing and footwear. It was our chance to celebrate the businesses, designers and importantly the skilled workers behind the garments made in Australia.

At that point she began sewing nearly all of her clothing and never looked back. As a self-described fitting nerd, she teaches classes in northern New Mexico, with the intent of helping people of every size make beautiful fitting and comfortable clothing. She is currently working towards a Certificate in Fashion Design and has completed coursework in pattern drafting.

Mending save resources

Mending save resources

2021-03-2521:08

Kate Ward shares her research to show how mending helps save our resources. Kate has also shared this research on her blog so you can do additional reading about how textile manufacturing techniques pollute our planet. By extending the life of your clothes by months or by years, lessens your carbon foot print. What you pay for clothes impacts the working conditions of factory workers. The less you pay for ready to wear goods, the less factory workers are paid and their working conditions remain poor. #mendmarch run by Kate Sekules is a great way to take up visible mending one step at a time.
