RE-TIME, tailoring eco-social
ReTime is a small and artisanal eco-social tailoring. Ecological because the core of its work is to give a new life to old cloths and fabrics. Social because it promotes the job inclusion of vulnerable people such as refugees, asylum seekers and people with mental health problems.
This project born in an unexpected and casual interconnection among the Cooperative Fair-Trade Shop, Rita a young graduate in Fashion Design and Naseer a sous-chef that, before running away from his country, was working as a tailor.
As in many of our other experiences, it’s all about lives that cross each other and side by side merge individual paths for an indefinite amount of time.
This is our idea of doing business. A place in which we can produce useful and sustainable things, but also a place where we can create intense connections among people to grow together both individually and as community, sharing time, experiences, knowledge and projects.
Part of the production are made by the people of our guided work center, a rehabilitative daily service for people with mental health problems. Rita, besides managing the tailoring and designing the sketches, is also able to teach the technical and manual activities to everyone wants to learn and became a tailor. Naseer managed, after seven long years, to reunite with his family in Rovigo, and his wife today, is became his colleague in the tailoring.
Now, Rita and Naseer, are supported by Moussa, Samassi, Rashida and Emma in a multicultural laboratory made by different languages and personal stories.
