Our grandparents' clothes were made in natural materials like wool and cotton. Sometimes their clothes were made at home or in the local dressmakers. They were expensive to buy or make.

Clothes were often passed down from older brothers or sisters or cousins. Often, their mammies fixed the holes and tears that playing and working made in trousers and skirts.

Now, clothes are made in factories. Often these factories are in China or India.

New man-made materials like polyester are used. They are cheaper and new clothes are bought much more often.

When clothes get too small they are often sent to a charity shop or to a Bring centre where they can be reused.
