WORN WEAR: Free clothing repairs – to help the planet

Date: Saturday 23 September

Time: 10.00am-5.00pm

Venue: Market Cross pedestrianised area – rear shop

Worn Wear is coming to the Festival of the Fells, offering walkers the perfect opportunity to have their older gear repaired FREE OF CHARGE!

The Patagonia initiative Worn Wear was created in 2013 as a way to encourage people to take good care of their gear, washing and repairing as needed. It’s an extension of a philosophy Patagonia has held for more than 40 years. Worn Wear aims to keep clothing, regardless of brand, in circulation for as long as possible.

A Worn Wear session encourages people to think differently about their clothing and to help make their clothes last a lifetime. There will be free repairs on busted zippers, rips, tears, buttons, pulls and more – in addition to teaching people how to fix their own gear.

The Worn Wear mobile repair station is equipped with an industrial sewing machine and seamstress and will be open to anyone who brings in a garment in need of repair, regardless of brand!
