The Craftivist Collective Wants to Change the World, One Stitch at a Time

For as long as she can remember, Sarah Corbett has been fighting for social justice. Growing up in an activist family, she experienced firsthand how energy-intensive, frustrating, and ineffective conventional campaigning and protesting can be. In her search to engage the public more respectfully, she founded the Craftivist Collective to channel the meditative crafts of embroidery and cross-stitch into vehicles for change. What started out with a few miniature protest banners, earnestly rendered with messages such as “Now’s the time to act for justice” and “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” has since exploded into a global movement more than 1,000 members strong. It’s easy to “pick up the thread,” as Corbett describes it. Would-be “craftivists” can even purchase ready-to-stitch kits at the group’s online store. Ecouterre caught up with Corbett to learn about this new form of “gentle protest,” how crafting can lead to a more mindful approach to activism, and the role craftivism can play in promoting a more ethical fashion industry.

Interview with Titania Inglis

Thoughtful as they are devastatingly beautiful, Titania Inglis’ ethereal designs deliver a modern antidote to mundane and brutally basic wardrobe staples. Consisting of transitional dresses, jackets and separates that can be worn from day to night and spring to winter, each style embodies a dark, into-the-woods elegance that’s minimalistic while grounded in geometry and ease. Inglis’ collections are made in New York at a small family-owned factory from high quality materials that are ethically sourced from around the world, such as Japanese organic cotton, veggie-tanned leather, deadstock wool derived from New York’s Garment District, and wood pulp-based cupro twill. Some garments are even dramatically hand-painted in her Brooklyn based studio, with non-toxic silkscreen inks, to achieve a dip-dyed, smudged technique.
