Changing The Story of Fashion
Dhana Inc’s Circular Memory Jacket
In This Episode
What happens when your favourite t-shirt becomes unwearable? Maybe it has a rip or stain, or your significant other has banned it from your clothing rotation. Do you throw it away? Do you keep it in a drawer taking up space? Have you ever thought about just how much waste we create from the clothing items we toss away? Our guest Shamini Dhana has, and she has a solution.
Shamini is the Founder and CEO of Dhana Inc. award-winning sustainable circular fashion brand redefining consumer’s connection to people and planet. Dhana Inc. is currently running a Kickstarter campaign for their new product, The Circular Memory Jacket. This jacket provides a new way of looking at fashion by not only reusing materials but allowing the customer to incorporate their memories into the product by sending in 10 clothing items used on the inside of the jacket. Listen in to learn more and make sure to check out the Kickstarter campaign ending November 6th, 2019.
