About Beyond Retro

Price Range: $–$$

Part vintage clothing brand, part upcycled clothing brand, Beyond Retro has been a place for people to buy repurposed clothing for two decades, as has been their London thrift store.

If you’re a true vintage connoisseur who revels in retro Nike and rare collectible designer pieces, Beyond Retro has all that and more, repurposed into a comprehensive line of jeans, jackets, shirts, sweatshirts, joggers, dresses, skirts, and handbags.

Their “Reworked Vintage” is available for both men and women—making them one of the few offering upcycled men’s clothing.

Beyond Retro’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices

Materials: 

They sell some vintage pieces in store as they are, but the upcycled vintage clothing LABEL is 100% crafted from carefully curated vintage fabrics that don’t make it to their vintage floor.

Their reserve of deadstock materials and old clothes consists of a mind-boggling 93 million pounds (or 60 Olympic swimming pools) of fabrics of every conceivable quality.

Trims and hardware are also re-used when possible (like spare pennies stamped with their Anchor logo as buttons).

Supply chain & labor practices: 

They operate in a “safe and comfortable” Indian factory fully operated by Beyond Retro. Employees are paid fair trade wages and Skype with the brand daily. 

Because India is a hub for recycling sorting, they can make their clothes across the street from their sorting facility, keeping quality control at a maximum and emissions at a minimum. 

Any fabric that doesn’t pass the prototype phase can be returned and recycled back into production elsewhere.

Green business practices: 

Designed for the future, yet made from the past, this sustainable fashion maker ensures their vintage remakes won’t drop from being trendy by monitoring the runway and other fashion trends.

Their stores recycle not just old clothes, but all cardboard boxes and price tags.

Community & charitable giving: 

Beyond Retro “believe[s] in recycling. Clothing, organs and everything in between”.

While 85% of the population in Sweden want to be organ donors, only 15% actually register. 

Hence their Organ Donor Price Tag initiative. All garments in their Stockholm stores have tags with Organ Donor Cards on them. 

Tear it off, fill it out, put it in your sustainable wallet in case the worst happens, and you may save someone’s life.

What Does Upcycled Fashion Mean & Why Buy It?

Simply put: it’s any clothing made from textiles bound for the landfill or incinerator.

An upcycled dress could be made from upholstery, fabric scraps, or even carpeting—though you’ll most commonly find repurposed fashion made from other clothing (AKA deadstock clothing).

Most deadstock clothing comes from within the fashion industry (such as unsold out-of-style stock), but it can also come directly from consumers via brand recycling programs.

Some involve total “reinvention”, while other sustainable fashion upcycling might involve something more subtle, like reviving holey old jeans with stylish patchwork and embroidery.

Think of it as re-style-cling.

Why is fashion upcycled?

Because it needs to be. We are drowning in textile waste, which is the worst fashion trend since putting goldfish in shoes.

In fact, textiles have one of the poorest recycling rates of any reusable material, according to the EPA. We consume huge amounts of clothing annually yet donation (of which under 20% gets resold) and recycling rates remain pitiful.

The average American throws away 70 pounds of textile waste per year, amounting to 21 billion tons on an annual basis.

If you live across the pond, the situation is not much better. Every UK household throws away 35 kg of clothes per year, amounting to 300,000 tons hitting the landfill per the last tally in 2016.

This is the waste solely generated by the final product, not accounting for the tons of textile waste that comes from the production stage: fabric trimmings, ends of fabric rolls, damaged items,  and deadstock clothing. 

Recycled clothing is better simply because it has the potential to divert all that waste.

While we have a long way to go to reach full fashion circularity, each recycled clothes company on this list represents the beginnings of change—with an impact not to be underestimated.

Beyond Retro and their parent company Bank and Vogue diverted 10% of the UK’s total textile waste in 2019. 10% by just two brands! Imagine if more brands jumped on board.

Recycling textiles has the potential to shift fashion into the sustainable gear it desperately needs and as consumers, our demand is what can further action that change.

Recycle clothes for money(!) that you don’t want and replace it with some of the best upcycled clothing.


How We Chose The Best Upcycled Fashion Designers

We aim to support slow fashion and the best upcycled clothing brands provide the prime opportunity to do so.

But how did we pick out the cream of the recycled crop?

Our good ol’ guide to sustainable and ethical fashion once again came in handy.

Materials:

The best upcycled clothes are natural, sustainable fabrics. Recycled cotton, denim, hemp fabric, and linen not only keep waste materials out of landfills, but are compostable at the end of their second life.

Recycled synthetic fabrics don’t have a green end-of-life—unless we keep them in a circular system—but they do have the advantage of abundance, comprising 64% of modern fabrics.

Fortunately, most synthetics can be recycled indefinitely—and the process requires 90% less water, 85% less energy, and produces 90% fewer CO2 emissions than their virgin counterparts.

Whenever you wear and wash recycled synthetics, always use a Guppyfriend bag to prevent microplastics from entering waterways. 

Supply chain & labor practices:

Is upcycling ethical?

Considering it’s cutting out one of the biggest sources of worker abuse in the fashion industry—farming and raw material procurement—yes.

But we still want to see fair pay, safe working conditions, and proper treatment of the workers turning existing material into those gorgeous recycled dresses. 

This is where transparency comes in. We want to know #WhoMadeMyClothes and get some extra peace of mind to protect us from the dangers of greenwashing with third-party certifications—though keep in mind these aren’t 100% guarantees, either.

Green business practices:

Recycling fabric and other waste materials is a great start—but these fashion brands are doing even more. 

We’re happy to see upcycled clothing websites using recycled/recyclable packaging, repair programs, water and energy conservation methods (closed-loop manufacturing), avoidance of harsh chemicals, carbon offset programs, and small, local supply chains. 

Inclusivity:

It’s hard with limited availability of deadstock clothing and material, but body positivity, cultural representation, and inclusive size range is still important. 

We want clothing that accommodates all genders and bodies.

Community & charitable giving:

Every little bit matters, so it warms our hearts to see donations to charities, employee volunteer days, or simply raising awareness for environmental and social causes.


Final Thoughts On Recycled Upcycled Fashion

If you’re looking to help stop fast fashion, upcycling clothes is one of the best ways to do it—right after not buying anything at all and buying used clothing courtesy of thrift stores.

If you’re wondering what to do with old clothes, maybe this list will even inspire you to learn how to make clothes out of recycled materials yourself.

Pinterest is a wonderful resource for fun before and after upcycled fashion ideas.

But if crafting isn’t a skill in your upcycled fashion bag, you can still get that new dress repurposed with the help of these brands.

Keep the circular economy moving by sharing these upcycling companies with fashion-living friends and let’s all get behind the future of sustainable fashion.

  1. I’m a firm believer in upcycling! I’ve been designing and making upcycled clothing for a few years. Some of the best revues I’ve received are from Plus sized women… because they really don’t get to have custom “pretty” garments as much as the XS, – M sized girls. It is important that we try to use the gently used garments we come across and not just throw them away!

  2. Some beautiful suggestions in here that I’ve never come across before! Also recommend RÆBURN; pioneers in upcycling (RÆMADE, RÆDUCED, RÆCYCLED) and based in East London. They sell deadstock materials in their Fabric Shop, and even do super inspirational studio tours which are well worth it if you’re a student or fashion designer.

  3. I wish upcycled clothing begins to be appreciated in my country-Croatia. I have started my upcycled clothing workshop in order to be selfemployed. The authorities are normally giving money to those who want to be selfemployed. My project was refused as unsustainable, and did not get any score for inovative, eventhough , there’s noone around doing it, yet.
    I shall of course , do it anyway, for i believe i’m doing good for the environment , means for people as well.
