During my return to Weimar, I swapped a favorite shirt purchased in Helsinki three years ago, with an embroidered patch, made while working in Weimar.
It was a cool day, and I hadn’t brought a sweater with me, and the one hanging on the line looked very similar to the shirt I was wearing, it seemed like a perfect match.
Free change – exchange – extends the life of a garments, honoring the labor of it’s production.
By the end of the day, the shirt found a new home. The life of the shirt is extended.
Create opportunities to swap rather than shop! Host a party, friend to friend, or bring items u haven’t looked at in years to the Sewing Rebellion!
Public offender patch, made in Weimar in 2006.
gift transaction complete.
