Thinker, maker & mender.



I’m Louisa. A philosopher by training, with a long-time love for knitting and sewing. That has lead me to pursue a more thoughtful and ethical wardrobe. And also to embrace mending as both a practical necessity and a creative challenge.

I started the Worn Values blog as an exploration into slow fashion, wondering what ‘ethical’ and ‘sustainable’ really mean in the context of our own wardrobes and the fashion industry at large.

As I see it, slow fashion is about valuing the clothes on our backs. It is about questioning the origins of our clothes, honouring the resources and craftsmanship that went into making them, and celebrating the well-made, well-worn and mended.

Along the way, I hope to inspire and empower you too, in exploring your own version of slow fashion – whether that means handmade, long-worn, mended or thoughtfully acquired clothes.

Together we can move mountains.
