How We Create Sustainably
Circular and Slow at Our Core
At Re_considered, all our garments are made using second hand fabrics. Our goal is to minimise environmental damage by using materials that already exist but need a new lease of life. We believe circularity is crucial to upholding sustainability claims hence we do not work to seasons. Instead, we take a considered approach to design, creating seasonless, staple pieces for your wardrobe.
Design and Assembly
Our design team focuses on considered design, patchworking where necessary to minimise waste fabric and create unique garments. Patchworking allows for so much creativity in the design process offering both practical and aesthetic features.
To uphold our core value of reducing textile waste, our patterned garments are created with the intention to utilise the maximum fabric possible. This means that each piece created will vary and we are not always able to pattern match so we can continue to be as sustainable as possible.
Buttons, Threads etc.
We aim to take environmental care down to the design details of all our garments. All of our buttons are created from scrap fabrics and bio-resin to create distinctive, sustainable details. As a result each button is slightly different! When creating designs that incorporate second-hand buttons, we stick to the colour palette of the fabric used to ensure that your outfit is stylish and coordinated.
