Fashion meets Sustainability
Funky twists to classic cuts – all made from second hand materials!
I love clothes. And I care deeply about the environment.
There’s a lot of stuff out there and a planet that’s filling up fast! Fast fashion has created such an incredible surplus of textile goods being produced and thrown away every day.
I hate waste and I see value in all things.
Absolute Rubbish is entirely sourced from local designer’s remnant fabrics, secondhand clothing and upholstery ends.
“Eco” is not necessarily about bamboo, hemp and organic cotton fabrics.
Using what already exists and working with what you’ve got (or what others get rid of) reduces the environmental footprint created from the manufacturing, packaging, and worldwide shipping of fabric bolts and textiles from mill to supplier to designer/manufacturer.
Designing this way means that every collection is a limited run.
When you purchase an Absolute Rubbish piece, you are acquiring one of only a few pieces like it available in the world!
Be unique! Be bold!
At Absolute Rubbish, even our shipping materials are secondhand! I’ve been saving boxes, mailers and tissue paper for YEARS! I always knew there was a reason! ;)
I hope you enjoy your Absolute Rubbish piece.
I thank you for your support –– the planet thanks you for treading lighter!
