Who is Jinkies Collection?
The story of Jinkies Collection begins in 2014. I had accumulated a large quantity of vintage and secondhand pieces that I found hunting around charity shops, fairs and carboot sales over the years. I decided to have a much needed sort through of my overfilled wardrobe and sell any of the unwanted items. I came across Depop (a selling app) and fell in love with finding new homes for clothing that would have most likely ended up in landfill. In 2016 I finally came up with a name I liked and created a new account to build my own vintage shop. A shop where I could curate a collection of vintage gems and in my own small way help the planet. I've managed to rehome over 45,000 items so far and build a following of over 43,000 people. Now here I am with my own website. Thank you to those that have supported me over the years and to those who are new here, welcome! 💗
The name Jinkies Collection was inspired by the iconic Velma from Scooby-Doo
Our passion for Fashion & The Planet
At Jinkies Collection our passion is to provide a stylish alternative to fast fashion and stop items going to landfill. Clothing is one of the biggest polluters on our planet, purchasing second-hand can help reduce this damage. Please support small businesses where possible!
The Facts ☝️
- *'More than two tonnes of clothing are bought each minute in the UK, more than any other country in Europe. Globally, around 56 million tonnes of clothing are bought each year, and this is expected to rise to 93 million tonnes by 2030 and 160 million tonnes by 2050'
- *'And globally, an estimated 92 million tonnes of textiles waste is created each year and the equivalent to a rubbish truck full of clothes ends up on landfill sites every second. By 2030, we are expected as a whole to be discarding more than 134 million tonnes of textiles a year.'
- *'The majority of garment workers are unable to afford life's basic necessities. Fair pay for labour is a fundamental human right, but none of the biggest fashion brands pay garment workers a wage they can live on.'
Fast fashion not only destroys the environment but also the lives of human beings all across the globe!
