How we acquire the old garments we use
We are proud to work with a strong group of partner brands who are committed to environmental sustainability, and who work to improve the lifecycle of their products and reduce the impact of textile waste.
These companies help us gather old outdoor gear from their customers, when that gear has outlived it first life. These items become our raw material.
If you are interested in becoming a ReFleece partner, or want to discuss lifecycle concerns around your products and ways we might cooperate, email us: [email protected]
