Fashion brand Eileen Fisher and West Elm launched on Tuesday a sustainable collection of home decor and furniture designed with upcycled Eileen Fisher materials.
The limited-edition collection was centered around a zero-waste system and uses previously owned denim garments donated by customers through Eileen Fisher’s 'Renew' Program.
Donated items are deconstructed, meticulously washed, repaired, and hand-layered into intricate and thoughtfully designed patterns, making each piece in the collection one-of-a-kind.
The collection, available online at both retailers, includes a selection of pillows and casual seating for a total of eight pieces.
“Our team was delighted to partner with West Elm because of our shared passion for creating responsibly-designed products,” said Fisher, founder, and co-CEO.
“With these beautiful designs, we are extending each garment’s life cycle and drastically reducing the waste that we put out into the world. As other brands join our mission, we will increase the potential to create positive change in the way we manufacture — by being kinder to the planet.”
The collaboration marks the first time Fisher brings its denim felting method to a home retailer, thus giving garments a second life beyond the closet.
“Eileen Fisher leads the apparel industry in sustainable innovation and has developed a transformative technology that allows us to introduce circular design to a collection of textiles for the home,” said Alex Bellos, president of West Elm.
“Together, we are bridging our shared commitments to responsible retail and great design to offer quality, artful pieces."
