Recycled Fashion: TRAIDremade

Ever bought something telling yourself you'd customise it? Ever eagerly rushed out to buy lace, thread, sequins or buttons? Ever dumped the whole lot in the back of your wardrobe and abandoned the whole thing as a massive faff? Let's face it, there's more chance of you finding Narnia back there than ever picking up that project.

So thank goodness for TRAIDremade, who do all the customising for you. They take textiles destined to be thrown away, and refashion them - literally - into beautiful one-off garments.

A lace collar navy sweater with three-quarter length sleeves. Perfect for this not-quite-fullblown-winter weather, especially at just £25.

I think Frances would approve of these polka-dots. This folk skirt is £28.50.

These quilted silk ballet pumps come with a handmade fuchsia zip bow with vintage buttons, and an insole printed with riverside London landmarks. They're £40 and you can save them for next summer.

All this prettiness AND they donate all their income to fight global poverty. This is basically the equivalent of buying clothes from an altruistic Stella McCartney. Check out the TRAIDremade website or visit the shops in Brighton, Brixton or Camden for unique, wearable clothes that don't cost a million pounds.
