Exported waste clothing, emanating from a western context, saturate indigenous African markets but satisfy local clothing needs. This produces a dichotomy in ways in which it is viewed and the necessary actions needed to address the issues of waste within a circular economy. Experiences and outputs from recycling clothing waste in a UK based context are applied to that of a Tanzanian context and methods for re-appropriating this waste back into manufacturing systems are explored. These include ideas for re-exporting remanufactured garments back to their place of discarding and of working cross culturally with local designers and businesses to address indigenous clothing and manufacturing capacities and needs
