Our Partners
We actively work in a collaborative spirit with our community
We work with forward-thinking brands and manufacturing partners to co-solve their material excess to benefit people and the planet - and to make the circular economy come to life.
Most businesses routinely end up with excess materials that are generated through their regular operations that, for a host of routine reasons, become unwanted for their larger scale production. Through our collaborative long-term and ad-hoc partnerships, we create solutions for IP and non IP sensitive excess materials, which enables us to donate some business profits to charity Redress to support further the development of a more sustainable fashion industry.
We’re pleased to share our partnerships with various leading quality suppliers, including:
We’re also looking forward to sharing our brand partnerships with some of the world’s top luxury brands soon.
Coming soon
We pride ourselves in being diligent and truthful.
In addition to our R Mark, our hallmark that assures the rescue of waste for reuse or recycling, and we work with partners such as SGS, the world's leading testing, inspection and certification company, to seek their independent, third-party verification.
Rescue the best materials
Rescue the best materials
To verify the safety and durability of our materials, SGS performs physical and chemical testing on some of our rescued waste fabrics, which come from trusted fashion brands, mills and manufacturers.
In addition, on select of our collections and collaborations, we work with SGS on their ‘Upcycling Verification Program’, which demonstrates traceability and transparency in the supply chain to verify our waste materials.
Assess our environmental savings
Additionally, our environmental assessment partner, Impact of Fashion works with us to measure and evaluate the environmental impact of our most recent rescued materials and latest collections, and they perform Life Cycle Assessments for us, which are complex investigations into the impacts of our sourcing and production along a product’s lifespan from fibre production to product completion, for some of our select projects. Using science-based data and footprint analysis, this backs up the benefits of our work to rescue, reuse and recycle waste in comparison to using virgin materials.*

There are between 75 million workers* making the world’s clothes and shoes - 80% of them are women* - with families to feed and dreams of their own.

We really care about the people who make our clothes, so we only work with manufacturers who can guarantee the safety and wellbeing of all the workers involved throughout our supply chain. Our Code of Conduct stipulates that we must create a healthy work environment inside the factories and pay fair wages.

We have long-lasting and committed relationships with our manufacturing partners, who we consider friends of our collective and who are also committed to people and the planet.

We have a range of our manufacturing partners, some of whom specialise in different material types, which reflects and responds to the diverse types of waste materials that we rescue.

We work with world-leading packaging solutions providers to reduce waste right down to our labels and bags.
We must address the world’s catastrophic single-use plastic usage and reduce wastage of materials from the supply chain to your front door. Three hundred million tonnes of plastic waste is produced every year, which is nearly equivalent to the weight of the entire human population*.
Avery Dennison - innovative labelling and packaging
Avery Dennison - innovative labelling and packaging
Through our partnership with Avery Dennison, a global leader in innovations and materials science, branding, and manufacturing, we are innovating new ways to deliver our entire business story and core values through Digital Care Labelling, sustainable branding and packaging solutions. This includes our woven brand labels produced from recycled yarns, zero-waste water-soluble hangtags and innovative digital solutions to communicate our care campaigns and to increase our transparency with our customers.
We use Avery Dennison’s plastic-free garment bags, which provide an alternative to single-use plastic poly bags that are commonly used within the supply chain, with plastic-free bags that are curbside recyclable. And our branded e-commerce mailer is made from environmentally friendly kraft paper, meaning it can be easily recycled by the end user to promote circularity.
Hydroplast, biodegradable bags
We also partner with Hydroplast on their environmentally friendly, water-soluble packaging bags, which are safe for humans, animals and the environment and certified biodegradable according to European standards. That means you can dispose of our shipping bags in the compost and general recycling. Best of all, you can even dispose of our bags instantly just by placing them in hot water!
In this way, across our partnerships, we avoid the need for non-biodegradable, conventional plastic bags, which break down into microplastics that are harmful to the environment and wildlife. Help us tackle single-use plastics together, every time you shop with us.
