Community Clothing at Selfridges

British fashion designer Patrick Grant is the man behind Community Clothing – an innovative social enterprise dedicated to making clothes, creating jobs and restoring pride in the UK textile industry.

By using the spare capacity of Britain's mills, Community Clothing is helping nurture local communities and preserve traditional skills while creating an accessible range of everyday staples for men and women.

The profits from the sale of these clothes are then used to support local projects in the communities where the textiles are produced. 

Discover Community Clothing when it pops up at Selfridges Birmingham, Manchester Trafford and Exchange Square as part of our Material World campaign and find out more about the initiative with panel talks and a design workshop.
