The Thread That Binds Us | Samata Pattinson | TEDxFargo

Sustainable design trailblazer Samata Pattinson takes us on a journey in search of connection through the intertwining of sustainability, culture and design. Rooted in the questions of what, how, and why we wear our clothes across the globe, this narrative unfolds through the eyes of the British-born Ghanaian entrepreneur with a diverse background spanning fashion, film, education, and media. ‘The Thread That Binds Us’ artfully weaves the connections between apparel and a range of vital topics, including health, the environment, and even children’s curricula.

Presenting an opportunity for collective introspection, Pattinson encourages us to scrutinise the impact of our clothing on both people and the planet. Her insights inspire profound reflection, foster meaningful conversations, and drive impactful decisions. Samata Pattinson is an entrepreneur working across fashion, film, and media and the CEO of Black Pearl.

Samata Pattinson presenting Manteco with the Climate Action Award, September 2023.

The Climate Action Award is dedicated to fashion brands, suppliers, and organisations that have developed solutions to significantly reduce the sector’s greenhouse gas emissions. According to the Science-Based Targets Initiative’s Apparel and Footwear Sector Guidance, fashion-related raw materials extraction and production processes generally account for more than 50% of lifecycle emissions. Therefore, special consideration has been given to candidates that are  lowering their emissions by keeping products and materials in circulation.

Additionally, we will explore innovative funding solutions as key drivers of sustainable progress, paving the way for a more sustainable and responsible future.

Introduction to Sustainable Fashion

Sustainable fashion is becoming increasingly popular due to its positive social and environmental impact. It takes the principles of sustainability and applies them to fashion, focusing on materials and designs that are made in a way that won’t damage the planet or people.

It’s an effort to extend the life cycle of clothing through upcycling, repairing, reusing and repurposing garments, minimizing waste as well as reducing pollution caused by throwaway trends. Sustainable fashion will also ensure fair wages for workers in the textile industry. ‘Introduction to Sustainable Fashion’ will guide you to understanding how sustainably sourced materials can help build a more sustainable future for us all!

Fashion's Waste Problem

Did you know that 92 million tonnes of textile waste ends up in global landfills each year? Or that the shirt you’re wearing right now will most likely be worn less than 10 times?

In this video, Kelly Drennan, founder of Fashion Takes Action, Samata Pattinson explore one of the biggest impacts of the fashion industry: textile waste!

The Secret Life of Clothes

Have you ever considered who made the clothes you wear? You may not realise, but behind every single piece of clothing we wear, is a story about how it was made and by who.

How Much Pollution Are You Wearing?

Have you ever wondered how many chemicals are used to make your clothes? Or how much water was polluted as a result? What about the number of trees that were cut down to make your leather bag? In this video, Kelly Drennan, founder of the non-profit Fashion Takes Action, and Samata Pattinson walk you through the lifecycle of a t-shirt and how much pollution you might be wearing!

Who is Responsible for Sustainable Fashion?

The conversation regarding sustainable fashion has never been more relevant. But whose responsibility is it to make sure fashion is produced and consumed in an eco-friendly manner? The answer may surprise you – it’s actually a collective effort! Everyone from manufacturers and designers, through to technology innovators, charities, and consumers all have a role to play in transitioning the fashion industry to one that is more sustainable.

To better understand the role we can all play, check out ‘Who is Responsible for Sustainable Fashion?’, featuring Remake Founder Ayesha Barenblatt and Global Policy Director at Fashion Revolution, Maeve Galvin as it explores this issue and outlines tangible steps each of us can take.

Sustainable Fashion Awards, Milan

“With diversity, equity and inclusion we have perspectives which inspire and challenge our own, experiences which enrich or expose our own, and expressions which break through even the coolest exterior and bring out real emotion and beauty. An industry that doesn’t weave these things together doesn’t reflect the world we live in….

Putting diverse and inclusive representation at the heart influences what you make, how you make, why you make and even when you make. It ripples through to policy, metrics, strategy, talent. It’s in every room, not just some rooms..”

Dear Fashion...

I wrote ‘Dear Fashion, we are not your Immigrants, and you are not our Expats’ in June of 2020.

This reflects a habit I have of writing content and sitting on it due to anxiety or self-doubt.

This piece has been delayed and delayed for so long. All my own doing. To make it part of a wider project, to try and amplify it with a voice with a bigger platform than my humble community. I couldn’t get the people I wanted to get behind it and realised maybe it’s too out there and provocative. Or maybe they are just in their own projects and stretched to bandwidth, like we all are. I can only control, what I can control.

Then I realised, I wanted it out there because my motivation for writing it was not for the amplification of others, but to reach and touch just a few like the ripple effect I always talk about (sometimes starting small is the best way).

A ripple so that in turn, we all might start to see how language, the way we speak and the things we say, have the power to build or destroy, stereotype or shatter ceilings, and importantly, bring us closer together or push us further apart.

If it does that for just a few listeners, I will be happy. So have a listen, tag a friend who might enjoy this, and I hope your language and communication become culturally richer as a result.

‘Dear Fashion,

We are not your Immigrants and you are not our Expats.’

Let's challenge the expectations for what Luxury and Black means....

Let’s talk about black owned luxury Whilst we are facing an uncertain future, and the income disparity is set to be exacerbated, in 2019, the combined buying power of blacks, Asian-Americans and Native Americans was estimated to be $2.4 trillion, while the nation’s Hispanics command $1.5 trillion in spending power—larger than the GDP of Australia. Africa now has the fastest-growing middle class in the world. Some 313 million people, 34% of Africa’s population, spend USD 2.20 a day, a 100% rise in less than 20 years, according to the African Development Bank. It is the world’s fastest-growing middle class. Let’s talk about not prohibiting the black community from participating in luxury fashion conversations. If we continue to act like we don’t have a place in these spaces, we will continue to only be product buyers and never brand owners.
