Meet the Team: System Specialist (and Rock Climber Extraordinaire) Hana

September 09, 2020

Name: Hana Acciaioli

Role: System Specialist

Why do you work at The Renewal Workshop?

One of my favorite hobbies has always been thrift shopping.  I love the treasure hunting aspect and finding unique and beautiful fabrics.  I’ve also always loved shopping second hand for practical reasons: why buy new when there’s so much life left in hardly worn items? I started working here out of my love for textile revival.  I’ve stayed here because I truly enjoy being a part of something that’s making a positive difference in the world.

What’s your favorite Renewed item?

I love working with garments that you can see the intention and love that has been put into them.  That’s pretty much everything here! But I especially love The North Face Remade collection as well as our new partner, ace&jig’s intricate textiles.

Do you have a tip, trick, or advice to share with others living circular?

When buying online, look for materials that will last and stay fresh looking—my personal summertime favorite is linen!
