How to take care of your wardrobe

Hi all!

A sustainable wardrobe is more than just buying items that are sustainably produced or renting (out) items. It also means taking good care of the clothes you already own to increase their lifespan. In today’s blog, I will teach you how to take care of your wardrobe.
