Remie Studio’s objective is to save as many textiles as possible from ending up in landfill. They use pre-consumer waste (offcuts left behind after pattern cutting) and post consumer waste (unwanted or damaged garments), the goal is to use the fabrics and turn them into something new and beautiful. The fabrics are grouped into colour as a ways to avoid extra dying and water usage. They are then deconstructed and reconstructed together using intricate stitch work.
Creating the fabric from scratch in their small East London studio takes time and patience, creating pieces of fabric for each pattern piece to avoid creating off-cut waste. The pieces are then constructed into accessories, ready to be cherished by you. A completely unique bag that is more an art piece than an accessory. Everything from the salvaged fabric linings, to up-cycled handles are all chosen with sustainability in mind. With two key styles, Remie studio’s bags marry practicality with creativity.
