We are pleased to announce that as part of the Tallinn European Green Capital 2023 program, we have opened a new repair and upcycling studio, Trash to Trend, in the heart of Tallinn's Old Town.
Trash to Trend is a studio dedicated to extending the lifespan of clothing and footwear and promoting sustainable consumption. The studio offers the opportunity to bring clothes and footwear for repair and upcycling, and to learn simple repair techniques under the guidance of skilled professionals.
In addition to repair services, Trash to Trend regularly organizes workshops with experts in the field such as Reet Aus, Anu Rieberg, designers from the Estonian Academy of Arts, Cleanstep, and more, who share their knowledge on clothing and footwear repair, maintenance, and upcycling.
"We aim to show with our new studio that a quality product can remain in circulation for a long time through proper care and appreciation, thereby serving its owner for decades. As Vivienne Westwood said: Buy less, choose well, make it last!" explained Reet Aus.
The studio will open today, on May 9th at Müürivahe 17 and the first workshops will take place on May 20th and 27th.
More information available on the trashtotrend.art website.
We hope this initiative inspires more people to consider the impact of their clothing choices and take steps towards a more sustainable future!
The project's partners include Tallinn European Green Capital 2023, Reet Aus, Anu Rieberg, the Estonian Academy of Arts' Sustainable Design and Material Laboratory, and Cleanstep.
