World 30, Exploration B

Sewing machine and books for communal use.

In World 30 the reworking of items of clothing is common due to communal sewing machines available in public areas. High end brands, such as Chanel, are now using their old collections to create new collections and a no-wastage program is popular throughout all generations.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
