An Evening To Wear Your Values
About April 24
This event commemorates the 6th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh on April 24, 2013. The deadliest garment factory incident in history, where 1,138 men and women lost their lives and many more were seriously injured. Fashion Revolution was born on the day that Rana Plaza collapsed to catalyze global debate around the fashion industry, asking the critical question, #whomademyclothes?
Remake is a non-profit that is igniting a conscious consumer movement to turn fashion into a force for good. Our original documentary footage brings you face to face with the women who make our clothes. We share facts and stories to help you break up with fast fashion and provide seasonal curated collections to remake your closet with fashion that respects women and our planet. #wearyourvalues

Unravel Presents: Clothing Swap for Fashion Revolution Week
Make It Last Clothes Drive
ABOUT THE EVENT
In honor of Fashion Revolution Week, we are hosting a clothes drive for the Make It Last Program and collaborating with C.Mota Studio on repurposed first responder uniforms as a reminder to turn fashion into a force for good.
Enjoy free custom prints if you donate clothes—bring any piece of clothing or textile-covered item you want customized (e.g. hoodie, tote bag, canvas shoes).
Donate clothes into one of three bins that represent a different non-profit:
If we repurpose and sell a garment you donate, we will give 15% of the sale to that non-profit. (Clothes we do not get around to upcycling will go to Helpsy who prevents textiles from ending up in landfills.)
ABOUT THE C.MOTA STUDIO COLLABORATION
15% of every purchase from the collaboration will be donated to Remake.
Pioneering the shape of sustainable living by reclaiming & re-purposing existing materials, C.mota Studio builds community in alignment with innovators advocating progressive social & environmental solutions to protect people and our planet.
The founder of C.Mota Studios, Carla Mota, was the former Design Director of Champion and now advocates for progressive social and environmental solutions.
