In 2019, we embarked on a journey to create sustainable apparel locally that can make a difference in line with our brand values. Our RE-Wear range of tees and apparel not only make an impact on the environment, but also benefit everyone in the local supply chain, creating opportunity within the sustainable fashion space in South Africa, and creating future-proof employment.
Our RE-Wear range is made using post-consumer plastic recycled directly from landfill, our tees are blended with cotton for a soft feel and our jackets are lined with 100% eco-down. We put quality first, ensuring that we deliver a product that is both environmentally conscious and premium quality, made to last.
FOR THE PLANET, FOR THE PEOPLE
Furthermore, our partnership with PETCO ensures that our eco puffer jackets give back beyond environmental issues with a portion of proceeds donated to PETCO for every jacket sold. Funding raised from proceeds of jackets sold is used to educate and equip independent recyclers in South Africa.
RE-WEAR FOR YOUR BUSINESS
RE-Wear tees are not only a sustainable choice for your business, but they're also a superior garment. Using a unique blend of 65% polyester made from recycled plastic and 35% cotton, each RE-Wear tee recycles two plastic bottles or more. Wash and wear tests show they don't fade, lose shape, or unravel after multiple washes. Branding tests show that Re-Wear tees can be screen printed, digitally printed, and embroidered just the same as a regular tee.

*A statement on recycled polyester. The topic of recycled polyester is polarizing and complicated. We maintain our belief that disposing of existing plastic through the use of rPET polyester in fashion, and the replacement of virgin polyester with rPET polyester is a positive action towards sustainability. This is in line with Fashion Revolution, a global sustainable fashion non-profit."At Fashion Revolution, we believe that if we are to address the plastic crisis in our landfills and oceans, we need to take all the waste we'v created, and engineer it into something worth wearing. As a first step, we should ask fashion brands to ban virgin polyester, and then ask them to innovate better solutions for synthetic materials." - Fashion Revolution, January 2020.
