Tierratletix Clothing Cycle
OUR CLOTHING PROCESS
Everything we do at Tierratletix , we do with mamá tierra in mind. In terms of our clothing, this means not falling into the fast-fashion consumer mentality.
Our clothing revolution :
In order to fully avoid fast fashion we have opted to follow the circular economy model. Put very simply it’s the idea of taking, recycling and reusing a step further by applying it into our consumer life. The key steps being re-use, repair, recycle and re-designing.
At Tierratletix,this means that every single clothing item you purchase will have multiple lives.
We begin in the recycling stage by taking a part used clothing and then combining it with bamboo threads in order to re-design it as a new athletic apparel item.
Customers return their clothing to be “repaired” when they no longer want it , want something new, or their clothing needs to be modified to body changes.
Customers only pay for the repair/modification of the clothing, in other words the “new parts” that need fixing when they order a new clothing item
For Tierratletix , the repairing step is crucial and goes beyond mending clothing, it involves re-designing and fulfilling that innate human desire for constant change while following our natural ecosystems cycle of using “waste” and reusing it to grow and create
