Designer Reet Aus is dedicated to slow fashion and her upcycled collection is entirely made from post-production leftovers. She keeps proving that clever design can salvage mountains of unused textiles
and the natural resources spent to produce them.
She has developed an industrial upcycling method that involves complete lifecycle analysis of the garments.
The method enables to circulate the leftover materials back to production inside the same factory.
Most mass-production manufacturers are left with average 18% of pre-consumer textile waste
that ususally is taken to landfill or burned.
Each garment in Reet Aus collection saves on average 75% water and 88% energy.
Collection is produced following UPMADE® Cerfication criteria.
