Sustainable outwear, handmade in Ireland
Attention Attire was created as a response to Irish festival campsite waste. Every year, hundreds of weekend camping festivals across Ireland generate tonnes of camping waste that is extremely difficult to recycle. Items at the epicentre of this waste crisis are tents, sleeping bags and other material based camping gear which is near impossible to salvage sustainably.
We create limited edition, handmade outerwear and accessories from upcycled camping gear left behind at Ireland’s music festivals. Each piece is crafted with recycled materials that would otherwise end up in landfill. We reuse everything – zips, toggles and velcro – ensuring nothing goes to waste.
CRNI is leading an EPA Green Enterprise project Circular Textiles, which will test the impact of three different separate collection systems for textiles and explore how we could manage the additional quantity of textiles that are collected. This project will be concluded in 2022.
