People love to keep what their two hands have made. Binning something is infinitely more difficult when you’ve invested time and craft into it. Clout applies this theory to clothing. Providing people with patches made from designer offcuts, and a platform through which to repair/upcycle clothes increases the likelihood that garments’ lives will be extended. Clout customers chase the status of owning designer gear and shift culture through learning to sew and repair clothing. Just doubling clothing’s lifespan cuts fashion’s greenhouse emissions by 44%, making extending the life of clothes instrumental in fighting fast fashion’s environmental impact.
