5 Fashion Brands That Bring Recycled Fabric To Life

JANUARY 07, 2020
What is deadstock fabric? Deadstock fabric is the left over fabric or textiles from fashion houses that will no longer be used for various reasons such as small defects, over buying, the textile is no longer useful for the company's designs, etc. Instead of being discarded into a landfill, some designers purchase this fabric and give it a second chance to be worn by recycling it for their fashion lines.

Here are 5 of our favorite brands that are bringing recycled fabric to life and saving gallons of water and resources from being wasted. What's not to love?


A faith-driven brand that delivers a fashion-forward interpretation of modest apparel. All Gracemade fabrics are currently sourced locally in Los Angeles.
