Centre Commercial are committed to being an environmentally conscious retailer; not only are they mindful of every brand and product that they stock within their store, they’re also the guys behind the most ethical sneaker brand in the world.

Patagonia then, whose own mission statement is, “build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis,” are a perfect fit for the store. The Worn Wear project is about saying no to throwaway fashion, promoting repairing and recycling of old items before reinvesting in new ones.

As an influential and inspirational hub, Centre Commercial aims to use their voice to further promote Patagonia’s message by housing one of Patagonia’s repair technicians on May 19. During the event you’ll be able to give your garms a second life by getting repairs done on clothing by any brand. Zips, rips, tears, buttons, you name it, they’ll do what they can to fix it.

Patagonia even encourage you to try repairs for yourself and have put together a series of guides to help with things like replacing a jeans button.

Drop by the Centre Commercial and alongside their sustainable sneaker label, Veja, you’ll also find Bleu de Paname, A Kind of Guise, Roseanna, Ami, G.kero, Suzie Winkle, Masscob, Paraboot, Simon&Me, and Études Studio, among others.
