It is also the time of year when the need for a "new autumn wardrobe" can easily arise. That the need is created is not strange in itself, we are constantly fed with articles, advertisements and posts about which garments are autumn's "it" garments. Most likely, it is not the same garment that was not last autumn, but the wardrobe must be updated and the clothing companies want to be the first to bring in autumn's trendy garments to the consumers.
"Fast fashion" is a term/method that includes rapidly produced design, production and marketing of a large volume of clothing. This at the expense of quality, our environment, and working conditions. These companies can therefore offer new garments and collections every week, which is extremely unsustainable from countless aspects.
Together with A Sustainable Closet , we instead want to draw attention to and highlight a sustainable way to update the autumn wardrobe!

Located on the pedestrian street, Björkå Frihet is a store with a huge range of clothing as well as interior design. Here you can lose both time and space looking through the racks of clothes. There are many hidden treasures in this store and every time we go in we almost always manage to go home with something "new". Don't miss their large selection of porcelain, interior design and furniture, there are extremely nice ones!
Last but not least, a little gem on the corner of Kungsgatan. Rad Suzie is a smaller store that is packed with incredible finds. What you can't miss is their accessory wall where a parade of beautiful jewelry is hiding.
