Exciting Sustainable Fashion Brands Using Recycled Materials
Fashion brands using recycled materials is becoming more widespread as fabric technologies innovate and brands have more options to experiment with. Sustainable fashion brands are being resourceful, sourcing recycled materials like vintage Levi's jeans, leather from the meat industry, and fabric off-cuts to create everything from footwear, jewelry, and bags made from recycled materials.

Many sustainable activewear brands and recycled swimwear labels use REPREVE, a buttery soft and quick-drying fabric made from recycled materials, including plastic bottles. The properties of this eco-friendly fabric make it perfectly suited to high-performance activewear and swimwear.

There are several recycled denim brands like RE/DONE and E.L.V. Denim that are reinventing old vintage jeans for new. These deconstructed modern silhouettes and patchwork make them one-of-a-kind.

James Jeans uses recycled cotton and Organic Basics, pictured, makes its underwear and essential clothes from recycled materials including recycled cashmere and recycled nylon yarn ECONYL.

It should not be forgotten that brands are making fashionable footwear from recycled materials too. Sustainable sneaker brands, like popular French label Veja and GREATS, use recycled cotton and plastic materials.
