We believe that style is eternal and that your clothes should be too. By shopping from the past, we can be kind to the future and help to reduce fast fashion’s impact on people and planet. We don’t mess around when it comes to sustainability, and our promises are legit! No greenwashing here!
We’re committed to cutting out single-use plastic from every step of our process by 2022. Currently, our live events use compostable potato starch carrier bags, our warehouse packing materials are all either compostable, or recycled and reusable. From our eco-friendly printing inks to our largely paperless office, we’re working hard to go beyond the obvious sustainability of our vintage products. We’ll always choose the most eco-friendly option, even if it costs us more.
Each year, 350,000 tonnes of clothing goes to landfill in the UK. There’s so much amazing fashion already in existence – so let’s make use of what we’ve got and #shopsecondhand, eh?! Look out on our social channels for ways to give new life to your secondhand Kilo bargains and keep that circular economy turning. With pieces starting from as little as a pound, we’re not at a point where we’re able to lovingly launder and iron every item, so some may look a little creased. Call it characterful (and very easy to remedy). A quick spin in the washer and they’ll be as good as new.
Call us soft, but we’re dead romantic and believe that if our clothes could talk, they’d be holding court, regaling us with their stories. Our clothes have a history, and those stories must not end with you. If you’re ready to part ways with an item, first consider reworking or repurposing it, or pass it on and let its saga continue...
