In 2016, the UK’s consumers spent over £75bn on clothing, footwear and household textiles, with the global textiles market estimated to be valued at £959 billion by 2025. It’s a vast industry, but a high percentage of these garments end up as waste, as the garments are not designed to be repaired or recycled, thus furthering the environmental impacts on top of those that come from the production stage.
