Stories from the Worn Archive.

What is the Worn Archive?

Worn’s projects all contribute to the Worn Archive: an ongoing collection of people’s clothing stories and experiences. The clothing chronicles we collect range from stories of the mundane everyday act of dressing to the complex and ever-changing relationship between clothing, identity and society.

For us, this valuable archive is a storytelling repository, rich research resource and way of sharing the stories of our community. Representing a diversity of real people, practices and topics, the Worn Archive’s stories come together to inspire and inform what we do at Worn and offer insight that can change the way we produce, use and value clothes.
