Times Square Center invites you to ‘Sew It, Don’t Throw It!’

Published on November 16, 2023

Visitors to Times Square Center are invited to “upcycle your preloved jeans” in a partnership event with ARTE, The Makers Market, Skills3, and Brother International who will be providing electronic sewing machines to help attendees repurpose jeans into tote bags and other fashion accessories. The event will take place at ARTE, The Makers Market in Times Square Center on Saturday, 25th November from 11:00am -6pm.

The event aims to raise awareness on fast fashion, focusing on how to repurpose used and discarded denim jeans into practical items, extending the fabric’s lifespan and reducing waste. With denim having a heavy environmental footprint, adding items to landfill is simply compounding the detrimental effects of waste fabric and clothing. Times Square Center is actively supporting meaningful initiatives that align with the UAE’s Year of Sustainability.
