At OUR SHIFT, we are constantly working on finding new ways to enjoy fashion in a manner that is thoughtful and responsible.
We upcycle clothing companies’ unsold inventory, deadstock materials, and discarded clothes and fabrics to extend their life-cycle and prevent their landfilling and incineration.
All clothes produced from alternative locations are exclusively made from certified organic cotton and other natural or recycled materials by manufacturers with the following certifications: GOTS, OE 100, OE Blended, OEKO TEX, PETA-Approved Vegan, REACH.
To minimize the CO2 emissions released during the process of producing clothes we focus on local production. Our upcycled products are made in-house and at our partnered production facility in Copenhagen allowing us to have full control of production processes and labor conditions. Our activist products are made in Germany and Slovakia.
We share know-how on sustainable design and upcycling techniques with fellow designers. We also upskill manufacturers to produce clothes with minimal waste, preserving as many resources as possible. Our upcycling workshops are open for the public to learn techniques to upcycle their own clothes.
