Places To Visit In Manchester | Junk - Sustainable Fashion Made In Manchester

Junk is an independent clothing and accessories shop that specialises in ethical clothing and was voted Best Small Independent Retail in Manchester in 2010. Most of their ethical clothing is either vintage or re-worked items!

A re-worked item of clothing is something that has gone through the process of things either being added to it or taken away. In simple terms let's say we take a dress, have the sleeves chopped off because they don't quite compliment it, or have elastic attached to the waist to give it more shape. This is quite a simple example but the point is to take an item that isn't quite right and make it more wearable. It's a great idea to do this yourself to help revamp your wardrobe.
