This is what Patrick Grant said on last night's Great British Sewing Bee! It really shocked me. This cannot be good for the planet, although I know there are many women in poorer countries whose work is sewing clothes for the likes of Primart and supermarkets.
I'd already decided to avoid buying any more clothes in "plastic" fibres if possible, and I also made up my mind to manage this summer with what I've got - apart maybe from the odd charity shop purchase eventually. I did order a couple of things online recently, but neither was suitable so they went back.
What are your thoughts?
