It is time for the spring cleaning... I’m not such a big fan of vacuum cleaning, dusting, washing the floors etc., so my cleaning is more concentrating towards my wardrobe. Once a year, I go thru my clothes and throw out the ones I have not been using within the last year. Ok, I do make some exception, like all the band T-shirt I have (oh, the memories :)) and some summer clothes, in case the summer before has been really cold. But other than that, I’m ruthless... Then there is the question what to do with the clothing I will not were anymore. Should I just throw it out, go to flea market or should I give them to charity? Throwing things out that could be used again is against my nature, I do support recycling, and as I haven’t been able to motivate myself to go to flea market either, I usually end up giving my clothes to charity.
I do admire people who are able to use old clothing and make something new of them, in a way give them another chance... A brand called Vietto (http://vietto-ecofashion.blogspot.de/) is an ecological brand that uses carefully chosen left over and recycled fabrics, high quality organic cotton, hemp, bamboo and tencel to their clothing. I have never heard about tencel before, so just in case you haven’t either, here is the link to wiki to explain what it is (tencel is also called lyocell) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyocell , but shortly it is fabric made from wood – yes, seriously.
They latest collection is called “Twisted ballerina” (love the name :)) and you can find the logbook for the collection below (or from here http://vietto-ecofashion.blogspot.de/search/label/LOOKBOOK). Unfortunately the pictures are quite small, so you can’t see the clothing so well, but the black dress/T-shirt looks interesting. I wonder if you can get one with different material/colour as the design of it is nice...
When looking around Vietto homepage (http://vietto-ecofashion.blogspot.de/) I did find the thing below. It is from the earlier collection, and I just like it lot! That jacket is definitely a thing to have... What do you think?
Huoh, time to continue with the cleaning...
