Society & Culture
In this episode I am speaking with Ilka White, an artist and textiles worker who has been investigating ways to make wearing clothing more sustainable. We talk about fast fashion and its antidote - the fibreshed movement - and everything in between. Basically, what considerations come into play when you want to choose clothing ethically.
Saltgrass is produced in Castlemaine, on Djaara country, home of the Dja Dja Wurrung people. We pay respects to elders past, present and emerging.
