The project Shirting Info Point Plovdiv – Sip Plovdiv introduces the city to the idea of the formation of a consumer-responsible community. This is a project that directs attention to the social, ethical and ecological problems related to the manufacturing and overconsumption of apparel. The concept comes from Shirting, a platform for sustainable clothing founded by a group of Slovenian designers in 2014.
The project sees fashion as an affordable quality product offered in a responsible way. The key product is a specially produced designer shirt which people pass on. The underlying concept is not of ownership but of co-ownership, of sharing and cooperation between users and designers. Further, it's about the creation of a community with responsible values in which everyone has a relationship with clothing, thus giving rise to interactions outside consumerism.
The key product is a specially produced designer shirt which people will pass on. The underlying concept is not of ownership but of co-ownership, of sharing and cooperation between users and designers. Shirting has had 10 editions around the world so far, and more than 500 users. It has been growing constantly. More than 40 designers have conceived 63 unique shirts, which users have shared.
