The R Collective is driven by a profound dedication to transforming fashion waste into covetable pieces. With their close-knit ties to luxury fashion businesses and manufacturing hubs, they’re in a prime position to salvage materials that might otherwise head towards landfill or incineration. Rather than purchasing deadstock materials, their innovative approach ensures meaningful environmental benefits.
Thanks to a vast collaborative network, The R Collective channels excess from various fashion entities into a revitalized, circular fashion cycle, negating the need for new virgin materials. Impact of Fashion, their assessment partner, scrutinizes the environmental savings of this model, comparing products fashioned from rescued fabrics against those made from new materials.
Their commitment to sustainability goes beyond clothing. The packaging solutions they opt for are environmentally friendly, and they’ve chosen to partner with UPS for carbon-neutral shipping, ensuring a reduced carbon footprint without passing any additional costs onto their clientele.
Central to their ethos is the “R Mark”, a seal assuring the rescue and repurposing of waste materials. Furthermore, they collaborate with world-renowned sustainable designers, spotlighting their inventive circular designs and boosting the circular fashion movement.
At the heart of The R Collective lies a team of seasoned fashion experts, all united by a singular purpose: to tackle fashion waste head-on, championing a system that prioritizes reuse and recycling. They maintain trusted relationships with manufacturing partners, ensuring not just the quality of the product but also the welfare of the workers, prioritizing safe working environments and fair wages.
