About Us

We're building a creative, social community of clothes swappers, borrowers, upcyclers, menders, and like-minded people in the Crumlin area. Everyone is welcome to take part in our events!

Our goal is to build common threads of sharing between people in the Dublin 12 community, re-learn useful mending skills now lost to a generation (but hopefully not for long!), generate affordable sustainable clothing solutions, and finally, to reduce the amount of clothing going to landfill.
