The R Collective is a social impact upcycled fashion brand with a mission to create beautiful clothes using waste materials. It was born from Redress, the pioneering Hong Kong based charity working since 2007 to reduce waste in fashion. The collections are created by rescuing the fashion industry’s excess materials, which were destined for landfill, incineration or downcycling. The R Collective seeks to unite innovative design with responsible manufacturing and labeling to reduce climate impact and clean up consumer care habits.
