A Zero Waste Initiative aimed to (Re)define the new (Nu) by giving new life to textile waste and old clothing through upcycling and using fabric scraps.
The Facts: the average Canadian throws out 81 lbs of textiles out each year. 10 million tonnes of clothing end up in the landfill every year.
Our Why: By creating this initiative, we hope to contribute to the solution and reduce our own environmental impact while creating products for your to love and use for years to come.
With 10 years of sewing experience under her belt, each of our Re·Nu pieces are designed and handsewed in Vancouver by Bianca Bellantoni. The fabrics used for this initiative are either fabric scraps, leftover deadstock or upcycled clothing in need of a refresher. We source all of these textiles from our own production and locally from Vancouver-based jobbers.
When you purchase one of our Re·Nu items, you are helping reduce textile waste while supporting a small, female-owned business.
