Enterprise name: ReFashioned by A Fitting Connection
What’s the trading activity
A Fitting Connection is a serviced based business that supports those who produce their own textile based product (most commonly clothing).
ReFashioned is our future. We want to see more business and community organisations reduce the amount of textile that is sent to landfill by using reclaimed textiles to create new products. We supports these business and organisations with our product development and manufacturing knowledge.
What’s the social or environmental cause your enterprise addresses?
We address the almost 14 thousand kilograms of textiles being sent to landfill every ten minutes in Australia.
We address it in such a slow and methodical way and avoid mass production again which is one of the main factors that contribute to this statistic.
What is the biggest challenge?
Finding businesses and organisations that are openminded to working with reclaimed textiles. Understand the challenges that lay ahead and that despite these are willing to take them on.
