Looking for ways to make your lifestyle more sustainable? One of the biggest generators of excess waste in the world is clothing. Not only does the process of making it often result in a lot of discarded material, but it's also an industry that requires constant production since we tend to change our clothes as often as the seasons change. However, with the state of the earth needing more attention than ever before, lots of brands both locally and internationally are trying to create new business models that are more sustainable and better for the environment. We recently spotted one you'll want to check out: homegrown label Re Clothing makes all of their one-of-a-kind embroidered pieces out of secondhand clothes!
Here's how it works: Re Clothing either curates everything in their collection from secondhand items or makes them from deadstock fabric that won't hurt the environment or generate unecessary waste. Each piece is then embroidered by hand with a unique design to make it new again, giving it a chic, one-of-a-kind look. Their line includes blouses, dresses, tote bags, robes, and more stitched with illustrations that have a distinctly local flair. You'll swoon over the designs!
