Countries in the Global North dump millions of tonnes of used clothing in Africa every year, in a process known as waste colonialism. This has a deeply damaging effect on the local environment and textile industry, and on the identities of locals pressured to wear clothing discarded by a distant other. Ugandan brand BUZIGAHILL and designer Bobby Kolade transform second-hand clothing from the Global North by deconstructing and reassembling the material into unique pieces. Kolade’s long-term plan is to revitalise Ugandan production, building small, specialised factories for repurposing used garments and producing hand-woven textiles.
