A B O U T U S:
Curated R x j’ai cycle is a collaborative summer project focused on facilitating events around Edinburgh to encourage the discussion and practice of a slower type of fashion consumption The fashion industry as it stands is one of the most polluting in the world, and is renowned for its extremely poor labour standards. However, we believe that as individuals we can spark change through the way we approach consumption and how we run our businesses.
