Let's give these old folks some new aged lovin'

Thank you for stumbling upon my humble treasure chest here at Old Folk. I am based in Torquay on the breathtaking Surfcoast of Victoria in Australia.

Old Folk was born out of my love for fossicking through op shops and flea markets for hidden gems in the pursuit of saving and rehoming beautiful, quality garments.

On my page you will find a collection of preloved treasures that I have personally hand selected with love, and with the intention of giving each piece a new lease on life. I hope you see the magic in my collection and can help me to give these old folks a new home!

I aim to seek out beautiful, timeless and long-lasting garments made from natural fibres such as cotton, linen and wool, as these usually wear for longer and will eventually decompose (once no longer repairable that is!). Although I try my best to find garments of a high quality, each piece has had a life before now and may come with it's own quirks and imperfections. I like to think of these as embellishments and stories from its previous life :)

My other reason for creating a preloved clothing store was to show the world a more conscious way to consume. Through this platform I aim to raise awareness about the unsustainable and unethical fast fashion industry, which is hugely detrimental for humanity and our beautiful environment.

Did you know that 6000kg of textiles end up in landfill in Australia every 10 minutes?

Did you know it takes 2700 litres of water to make one cotton t'shirt?

I have come to learn there has been a huge gap in my knowledge, and most likely many other's when it comes to knowing the often harmful environmental and social impact of the clothing we wear on our back. As a result, I felt called to do my bit for the planet and share the many simple tips and tricks that I have learned over the years with a focus towards making more environmentally and ethically conscious choices.

I hope to inspire you to consider your impact on the planet and give you the knowledge to move towards making more thoughtful and conscious choices as a consumer. Please feel free to jump on the fashion-conscious bandwagon, follow me on instagram @OldFolk_ and spread the word!

~ Positive change begins with the individual ~
