Recycle or die!

Just yesterday we had a discussion with friends (all of whom are working in the fashion industry) about the price of children’s clothing. And how some people spend enormous €€€ and $$$ on clothes that suit baby for a very little period of time. The clothes are lovely – there’s no denying but personally I just don’t see the point. When the clothes are not even ethical or organic or recycled or whatever… Or Local!

Today we visited Kierrätystehdas (Recycle factory) in Kaapeli. I bought a few items for my daughter. A spring/autumn coat and a dress. Both made here in Finland from recycled fabrics. Super adorable and super expensive! 100€ in total…auch! I wish I could afford local design more. But the price tag is heavier than my wallet.
