José Hendo takes part in a number of events. Here is the list of our upcoming events.
The VIRTUAL MUTUBA TREE
22 April 2021
Thanks to all who have continously supported our Mutuba Tree Planting efforts. On this Earth Day 22 April 2021, Bark To The Roots(B2TR) is inviting you to reconnect with mother nature by giving a gift to the planet through the VIRTUAL MUTUBA TREE. Your donation of £20 goes towards a mutuba tree seedling and training young men in learning how to nurture and harvest the trees, and to make barkcloth. In return not only are you giving back to the planet but we will adorn a piece of barkcloth with your initials, we then upload this image as a leaf onto the Virtual Mutuba Tree that will be on http://www.barktotheroots.

Inside Fashion (R)Evolution – Between Circular Economy and alternative Materials. Barkcloth – Alternative Materials for Sustainability in Fashion by Jose’ Hendo
20 April 2021
A civil society organisation in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany, campaigning for sustainability in various aspects of the daily life. On the occasion of the Fashion Revolution Week (commemorating the Rana-Plaza disaster in Bangladesh), we plan an online-seminar on alternative materials in fashion. Sustainability in Fashion by Jose’ Hendo
On 24th April is the anniversary of the collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory in 2013 in Bangladesh. Commemorating this disaster, the “Fashion Revolution Week” was established, to shed light on the continuing exploitation in the garment industry.
In this context, we would like to invite you to our online-discussion “Inside Fashion (R)Evolution” on Tuesday, 20th April from 07:00 to 09:00 PM (CEST).
While we are calling for a revolution in garment manufacturing, the evolution is already on the way. Get to know with us two innovative representatives of these developments.
After short presentations of our speakers, there will be plenty of room for direct talks and questions about the materials and procedures presented. Look forward to an informative evening, focussing on solutions rather than problems.

Care-Rewear-Repair-Recycle-Upcycle being the new normal
R3 Campaign Panel Conversation
16th April 2021
After the Rana Plaza factory collapse in April 2013, José Hendo decided to start my R3 Campaign to encourage people to prolong the life of their garments by mending, altering or upcycling. She wanted to be visual and vocal about the dark side of fast fashion and throw away culture while striving for sustainability. During the last year of the pandemic hopefully we have had time to rethink our impact on the environment. This spurred her to host a panel discussion about Care-Rewear-Repair-Upcycle being the new normal. A recording of this event will be available on José Hendo’s YouTube channel in due course.
‘José Hendo’ takes a fresh approach to contemporary fashion design, challenging the obsolescence nature of fashion, and the throw away culture. The label is passionately conscious of the times and is inspired by the world around us. It uses eco-friendly fabrics as much as possible, creating unique one-off pieces…
