Fabric Recycling Workshop For Senior Citizens

A- A+

Silver Talkies hosted a Fabric Recycling workshop for Senior Citizens by Revastra at Bloom & Grow . 

As part of our events, we try to bring together people with diverse interests and enhance their skills. It goes a long way towards forging friendships, sharing creativity and building bonds. Something just like that happened at our Fabric Recycling workshop held at Bloom & Grow, Koramangala, Bangalore. The workshop was the brainchild of Bhavana Pingali, a crafter and fashion consultant and writer, who runs Revastra, a slow fashion label that is looking at upcyling & recyling in various ways

Why a recycling workshop?
Reusing and recycling is something that comes naturally to many a silver we know. So we decided to get some of them together with the creative souls at Revastra, a slow fashion label that redesigns, repurposes and upcycles old sarees & dupattas in an effort to reduce fabric excess. All their products, packaging, tags, and tokens are made from recycled textile.
