Upclycling goes mainstream

Two brands have begun to repurpose old inventory to create new styles and some are even one of a kind.

Couture fashion may still be a drain on the enviroment but mid priced brands are leading the charge in sustainability.

We reported on Free People resaling thier returned inventory and now we have 2 others making the leap even further.


Once notorious for destroying old inventory, Coach has started a program where they reimagine vintage inventory into new one of a kind products!

The initiative is called (Re)Loved. The bags are vintage models that have been restyled by Coach’s inhouse team possibly to hide flaws. All bags are lovely restored.

Prices start at $250 and up but you get a one of a kind bag that no else will have.

Check out the styles here.


I just love furla’s jelly bag so imagine when they decided to recycle past unsold inventory into new bags!! The new bags are lighter and the price is wallet friendly!

I snagged the micro while my sister bought the bigger size! The collection is still available here.

Mini is 208 and biggie is 228.

Come back all Earth month long for brands pushing the envelope towards sustainability.

Happy shopping,
