Supporting communities of vulnerable members with training and job opportunities while transforming fashion into a more circular industry.

by The Reclaimery in London, England, United Kingdom

We are The Reclaimery 

We are an ethical and sustainable brand, championing the transition to a more circular economy. Our commitment to training and creating paid opportunities for vulnerable communities sits at the heart of everything we do.

Unemployment is an all-time high and vulnerable communities need our help 

The current climate has created further challenges for low skilled individuals currently unemployed in the UK.

Many of these individuals experience mental health challenges, struggling to support themselves and their families, with no clear path out. 

By training and up-skilling vulnerable community members we are both creating job opportunities and increasing their confidence and quality of life.

The Reclaimery can help and be part of the solution

Working with fashion brands and individuals, we transform current clothing items into new collections and styles. From these projects, we are creating London Living Wage job opportunities for our trained ´Reclaimers´. 

Striving to up-skill hundreds of UK individuals from vulnerable communities through this model, remaking unwanted garments and transforming them into unique pieces for re-wear or re-sale, while generating income for our Reclaimers through this process. 

By repurposing existing garments we also prevent thousands of garments from going to waste in landfills.

With your help we can train more people and create more opportunities

Not only do we financially support our Reclaimers, but we bring many other things; confidence, a skill set, purpose, meaning, stability, but most importantly, our Reclaimers are a community. 

Our Reclaimers focus not on making new products, but reusing what we already have, protecting the environment and encouraging entrepreneurship. 

We work hard repurposing unwanted clothing from individuals and brands, by hand, here in London. Each piece of clothing becomes a one of a kind, crafted with care and in turn adds value to each garment.

Here are just a few examples of the amazing work our Reclaimers have completed so far on their journey...
