In this podcast, Catherine Weetman talks to Laura Meijering, a designer, fashion lover and entrepreneur from The Netherlands. While studying, Laura watched the True Cost documentary - something inside her snapped and she realised she wanted to be part of a better fashion system. Laura founded UNRAVELAU in 2017, to unravel the threads of fashion and keep only the good parts. She wants to pioneer a new way of designing the clothes we wear. As Laura says, unravelling the fashion industry is a big job, and so UNRAVELAU starts by cutting the crap and spreading awareness of the impact we have on the planet. UNRAVELAU uses only organic and second-hand materials, and produces for customer commissions, so there is no dead stock.
