What happens when you mix one of Australia’s leading sustainable jean companies, with a team who curate the world’s best ethical fashion labels under one roof: Sustainable fashion magic.
Nobody Denim and Well Made Clothes have joined forces to create a 6-piece upcycled collection they’ve called ‘Repurposed’. Repurposed was birthed out of the knowledge that waste is one of the leading environmental concerns in the fashion industry. Fabric waste comes from rejected rolls, cutting remnants, garments which are worn once, and overall careless consumerism.
Did you know that the landfill piles up with approximately $500 million worth of Australian’s clothes and textiles every year? Nobody Denim and Well Made Clothes don’t support this. So, they’ve made a statement.
"Did you know that the landfill piles up with approximately $500 million worth of Australian’s clothes and textiles every year?"
Repurposed celebrates ethical fashion. The 6 pieces are made from 370 Nobody Denim garments which have become dead-stock, lonely, and homeless. Together Nobody Denim and Well Made Clothes have turned this dead-stock into 6 beautiful garments, totally rejuvenated, and even better than the originals.
Modelled by the wonderful Rachel Rutt, a skilled weaver and mender, Repurposed has made a bold statement in the fashion industry. It encourages and praises craftsmanship and thoughtful handiwork which adds value and meaning to a garment. The way fashion should be.
Flares, jackets, jeans, shorts, and skirts, Repurposed has hit the ethical nail on the head. Shop the collection here.
I live and breathe sustainable living and ethical fashion. This alternative way of consuming and existing dominates my every waking moment- and sometimes more. Ethical fashion and living are no longer my hobbies, it has become my mission... to change the future of fast fashion and the way we consume. My husband and I strive to live a zero-waste lifestyle, live at thrift stores, and always look to 'up-cycle' rather than throw out. Eco-living is not a choice for me, it's in my blood, and I am trying with all my power for it to be the new 'norm'.
