Taylor Stitch

According to Taylor Stitch’s website, it all starts with fibers and fabrics. The brand works hard to source materials that meet its expectations without harming animals or relying on harmful chemicals and cultivation practices. If it can’t find what it’s looking for, Taylor Stitch develops it for themselves. The company is committed to building products that outlast the competition, and that all starts with rugged construction and durable components. Taylor Stitch believes that fabrics shouldn’t be left to rot in a warehouse, so the company works with its factory partners to recover and reuse (or donate) deadstock fabrics.


Sustainability is in Finisterre’s DNA. The company carefully chooses the right fabrics to create the best possible products – from farm to factory to Finisterre. An outdoor apparel and surfwear company with a focus on functional and sustainable products, the brand is committed to a better way of manufacturing, both in the fabrics used and the manufacturers chosen to work with, seeking alternatives to what has gone before wherever possible. Demonstrating the company’s transparency, the i-spy initiative is a tool on Finisterre’s website that is a clear and concise source of information showing the traceability of Finisterre’s products. It enables the viewer to get detailed information about exactly what materials are used in each of the products and where they are sourced, where and how the materials are processed, the location of the manufacturing, and how the materials and products are transported between each of these steps.

Nudie Jeans Co.

Founded in Gothenburg, Sweden back in 2001, Nudie Jeans has long operated on the philosophy of making jeans that will last for a very long time.

The jeans that we sell again in our Reuse range are washed and then repaired if needed, and ready to become a new customer’s favorite pair. Prolonging the life of the denim by reselling, is also a great way to showcase the real value of the garment. In 2022 the brand sold 3,984 pairs of Reuse jeans.
