Nothing is lost, nothing is created, EVERYTHING is transformed.
Yeah, you, the one on the other side of the screen.
Ready for a wild ride?
Ready to slide down the rabbit hole and see what's on the other side?
Excellent, let's get to it.
Does that ring a bell?
Probably not. And that's okay.
He was a smart guy who came up with a phrase that echoes in our heads:
"Nothing is lost, nothing is created, EVERYTHING is transformed."
And that, dear reader, is what we like to call: our compass.
We want to talk to you about fashion.
But forget about the boring and repetitive fashion that's always asking for more, more, more.
And definitely forget about that fashion that banishes garments to oblivion after a single outing into the outside world.
We're here to tell you that it's totally alright to wear it on repeat.
Rocking that favorite piece of yours, over and over again. Because clothes aren't just for one season or one occasion; they can be your personal stamp, your ongoing statement.
We're going to talk to you about fashion that rises from its ashes.
This is fashion that's RECOVERED, TRANSFORMED, and something YOU LOVE TO SHOW OFF AGAIN AND AGAIN!
Look at your wardrobe.
Come on, really, look.
See that mountain of clothes piling up?
There are some pieces you maybe haven't touched since time immemorial.
But, you know what?
They're not rubbish. They're treasures.
They are rough diamonds.
Diamonds waiting to be cut and transformed.
Now, you might be one of those who think fashion is a bore.
You get up, put on the first thing you find, and that's it.
But here's a thought for you:
that t-shirt you picked blindly this morning, those jeans that fit you like a glove...
they're not just fabric and seams.
They're statements influenced by the industry.
But, wait a moment, what if you're one of those who live fashion?
One of those who meticulously select each piece they wear?
Well, let us tell you, this is absolutely for you.
We love that you care about your style.
We want you to look in the mirror and see more than a set of clothes.
We want you to take a gander in the mirror and see a reflection of self-love, a down payment on your own well-being.
We want you to see a message, a statement.
That you know that by choosing a garment, you're choosing sustainability, authenticity, and a piece with a unique story.
We want you to see a conscious decision you're making about where you're spending your money, and how, by supporting real sustainable fashion, you're also taking care of your health (because remember, a cleaner environment translates to a healthier you).
Whether you're a fashion dunce or a top-notch fashionista, there's a place for you here.
We're all making statements with our clothes, whether we want to or not.
So, how about we start making ones that really carry weight?
Are you in or are you out?
So you see, it's impossible to escape fashion.
But what you can do is decide how you relate to it.
You can choose garments that aren't just a style statement, but also a declaration of your values for the environment and for yourself.
And that's just what we do here.
We recover and transform garments (especially jeans), breathe new life into them, give them a new personality.
We break schemes, we break molds.
Because we don't give a damn what others think.
And on top of that, we teach you how you can transform any garment yourself through our training.
Because we believe in more conscious, ethical fashion.
We believe in repurposing, in transforming.
We believe in giving a million chances to that garment you love so much because it makes you feel good.
And honestly, there's nothing cooler than being authentic.
And we have a feeling that you believe it too.
RECLAIMED (AND REPURPOSED) (EXTRA)ORDINARY GOODS
Back in 2014, we kicked this gig into gear with the pedal to the metal and our sights in the rearview mirror.
We began reusing and transforming denim garments, not to follow the herd, but to lead a fashion revolution.
A conscious revolution.
And look at us: We made it.
We weren't content to follow the highway, we decided to take the road less travelled.
We created and sold garments for those who are sick and tired of being one of the crowd.
And yes, in 2022 we decided to share our know-how and launched our own training on recovery and transformation of all kinds of garments.
Because knowledge, like clothing, should be not only shared but also recovered and transformed.

But only if you're ready to challenge the conventional.
Only if you dare to repurpose and transform yourself.

In love with this ❤
Cracking post. Totally agree and spot on.
Fantastic tribute to jeans. I'm actually working on deconstructing any denim piece that enters my wardrobe to the limit.
