C&S is an upcyling clothing line based in Uganda which looks to alleviate the issue of the mass quantities of secondhand Western clothing flooding the African market through upcycling. Each piece is made from an entirely disassembled second hand garment, then reassembled and sewn together to create a whole different, new and individual story. The approach of having a ‘closed loop’ value chain is perhaps the most sustainably viable option for today where discarded garments are used as raw materials for production. This type of circular model is the ultimate aim of all actions targeting recycling.
Catherine & Sons was founded in 2011 and the collections are designed and produced in Kampala, Uganda.
