London-based brand Reclaim To Wear was first introduced by fashion label From Somewhere, founded in 1997 by Orsola de Castro and Filippo Ricci.
The label is a pioneer in ecological fashion, being the first to collaborate with fashion houses to upcycle production off-cuts to original creations.
RTW works closely together with academia, retailers and consumers to tackle the problem of textile waste.
Thanks to collaborations, larger amounts of fabric can be processed. For instance, Reclaim To Wear has teamed up with Top Shop, reusing this clothing giant’s textile surplus in three of their new collections.
