goodone recycled clothing

For some interesting and innovative recyled fashion, take a look at goodone clothing, who create unique one off pieces from hand-picked recycled fabrics. goodone garments are designed to flatter the body shapes of both men and women. All designs are produced in a range of sizes and if you provide your specific measurements goodone will create garments to fit you exactly.

You can also take part in the design process by providing your own materials, or contacting the label with your personal preferences on colour, style, texture and pattern.

goodone clothing arose out of discontent with a very negative industry that unnecessarily exploits people and the environment in the manufacture of garments. The creation of goodone clothing was born out of a desire to produce good clothing, with a company that focused on being good themselves, by being good to the environment, producing clothing that focuses on reducing waste, energy expenditure and pollution in the manufacturing process, hence the name goodone clothing.

The label source most of their materials from textile recycling factories in and around London and manufacture their products in the goodone studio in Hackney, East London.

My favourite pieces are the titty dress (as seen on the right) - made from a combination of handpicked recycled t-shirts, combined with organic fairtrade cotton, for £60 and the belt dress (as seen above) - made from a combination of hand-picked sweatshirts, for £70.

Recently, goodone have launched their response to the Anya Hindmarch 'I'm Not a Plastic Bag' bag, with a limited edition, organic, cotton, fairly traded cloth bag for £8, adorned with the simple statement, 'Do I fucking look like a plastic bag?' This is available via the goodone website.
