There’s a lot to like about Everlane: their transparent, direct-to-consumer pricing, accessible and body-positive model casting, and, lest we forget, consistently classic wardrobe staples that still feel thoroughly modern and fresh. That would probably be enough for us, but there’s an additional hook that always keeps the brand on our top ten lists: their ever-expanding selection of recycled fabrics. (Word to the wise: Everlane is offering free shipping until 9 p.m. PST tonight on some of these earth-friendly goods: their ReNew and ReDown outerwear collections.)
In 2019 alone, the brand unveiled three repurposed materials: ReKnit (a footwear fabric spun from recycled plastic bottles); ReDown (a collection of recycled-down outerwear), and ReCashmere (a collection of recovered sweaters rewoven from the precious goat-hair fiber). And let’s not forget last year’s launch of ReNew (a range of recycled-plastic polyester fabric used in a range of outerwear, tops, and intimates).
In addition, this spring saw the birth of Tread, a sneaker imprint that pledged to “make the world’s lowest-impact sneakers ever”, according to a statement from the brand, whose initial design — The Trainer — contained a sole that was almost 95% free of virgin plastic.
With so many eco-friendly options in the mix, we decided it was time to round up all of them, for a deep dive on each one. Click through to see all of the re-purposed fabrics that Everlane has to offer, along with an explanation of what’s actually going into the material and what styles you can actually own it in. There’s almost enough here to ensure that your entire wardrobe is recycled — and if Everlane makes good on their promise to eliminate virgin plastic from their supply chain by 2021, that may just be possible.
