Glass Onion, rooted in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, has come a long way since its inception in 2004. Beginning with market stalls and expanding over the years, they’ve firmly established their footprint in vintage clothing. Today, from their headquarters, they process a remarkable 20,000 kgs of second-hand clothing weekly – items once discarded, now rescued from reaching the landfills.
Their dedicated remade factory is a testament to their commitment. Damaged and undesired clothes get a new lease on life here, transformed into fresh wearable pieces. With a production of 12,000 pieces monthly, the collective experience of their remade team surpasses 600 years in the sewing industry.
Dismayed by the fast fashion trends that push clothing quickly from production to landfill, Glass Onion champions the Circular Fashion Economy. Their approach challenges the traditional linear fashion model, focusing instead on recycling and repurposing textiles. By extending garment life or crafting something entirely new from pre-existing materials, they not only continue the narratives these pieces hold but also contribute to a greener planet.
Beyond just sales, they genuinely breathe recycling. Their efforts ensure that thousands of kilograms of clothing find new homes or are skillfully revamped, emphasizing their unwavering commitment to sustainability. In their assortment, you’ll find pieces curated from numerous renowned brands, showcasing a fusion of the past with a sustainable vision for the future.
