Deadstock Fabric, Inclusivity and Learning to Love Your Stuff

The Clean Fashion Podcast

29-11-2022 • 1 hr 1 min

Deadstock is the term given to clothes and fabric that didn’t make the cut… but why do We Are Kin and Last Yarn make it such a central element to their brands? It’s bad enough that a huge amount of perfectly good surplus fabric ends up in landfill but Burberry made dead-stock especially scandalous in 2018 when they were reported to have sent £28 million worth of their materials up in smoke so that their brand didn’t risk being devalued by blackmarket resales and fabric recycling. In this episode our podcast hosts Aamina and Aaliyah speak to Ngoni Chikwenengere and Deborah Lyons about how their journeys began, some common misconceptions about what dead-stock means and the importance of inclusivity.
