Rediscover Fashion

Rediscover Fashion was established in 2008 to address growing national concerns within the fashion and textiles industry, relating to the environmental and social impacts of disposable clothing. Despite being a relatively easy waste stream to recycle, an estimated 93% of all textile waste in Ireland is sent to landfill, producing detrimental environmental effects. By reusing and recycling textiles, we can reduce these effects and the need for landfill.  


Rediscover Fashion produces a 100% redesigned, repurposed and recycled fashion, accessories and home ware range. As well as promoting waste prevention and textile reuse, Rediscover Fashion also provides training and employment and revenue is reinvested in training, materials and job creation.

Rediscover Fashion aims to change the way we, as a society, view recycled clothing, behave as consumers and manage textile waste.

Rediscover Fashion was one of ten projects nationally that was awarded the Arthur Guinness Fund Award in 2010, recognizing the potential of the project to create long lasting social change in Ireland.
