In today’s society, clothes are frequently thrown away before they really become unwearable. Work Factory – Textiles, set up in Slovenia, collects and sorts second-hand clothes and prepares them for resale either directly or after mending and restyling. Making this happen are 10 members of staff and 20-30 volunteers, all of whom come from disadvantaged sectors of society: disadvantaged young people; those who have left education with no formal qualification; the long-term unemployed or those in personal distress.
