FOUNDED ON A COMMITMENT TO PEOPLE AND PLANET.
Fashion Has a Waste Problem
Reclaim Has a Beautiful Solution
Our Raw Materials
Our raw materials are repurposed, natural fibre, antique textiles and high-end fabric surplus. We work with a number of distributors who sell us fabrics from:
- European antique dealers & estate sales
- Cashmere production surplus from Milan, Italy
- Companies collecting textile surplus & deadstock from European brands
Our leather comes from repurposed horse tack and production surplus. This discarded leather is destined for landfill, but we keep it in the circular life cycle through our products. We collect from:
- Horse stables in Mallorca
- Our founder Sarah’s family estate in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales
- Production surplus leather from our textile partners
Our unique waxed canvas collection is made with an incredible partner that makes canvas out of 100% recycled street trash. This organisation works in Haiti, Honduras and Taiwan; within undervalued communities to create a sustainable income for the inhabitants, whilst transforming their concept of waste.
Employees collect trash from the streets, ensuring it never ends up in a landfill or the ocean. It is then broken down into tiny pellets that they weave into a thread to make a beautiful waxed canvas. In addition to Reclaim, this company works with Ralph Lauren, Timberland, and other premier fashion brands.
All of our packaging is paper based, produced either from recycled sources or FSC forests. Our production partner, Esment Foundation, is based locally in Mallorca.
Production takes place in Mallorca at our own atelier, a converted 19th century shoe factory, that we renovated and moved into three years ago. We have a fantastic team of talented, local, women who lead the production of our products.
We’re committed to change in the fashion industry, so we collaborate with top, global luxury brands to turn their production surplus into exclusive collections for them. This helps us bring sustainability to large brands who want to be more sustainable, but have to change slowly due to the quantities they need on a daily basis.
The most urgent challenge facing the human race is a drastic reduction of CO2 (both emissions and existing atmospheric). Reclaim supports local beekeeping, rewilding & reforestation via Project Equilibri and global atmospheric CO2 sequestration, via Global Thermostat.
