- About the Brand
About the Brand
DesignBlender is a London-based atelier that practices 'glamcycling', the process of reworking old clothes into glamorous upgraded versions of their former selves. With sustainability at its heart, it artfully blends ideas, cultures and timelines and follows a zero-waste production method, striving to address notions of overconsumption and empower consumers to shop sustainably without having to scrimp on style. Materials are selected for their traceable, low environmental impact with many FSC and PEFC certified and OEKO-TEX approved, and the company offers a 'take-back' model where unwanted clothes serve as inspiration for new ones. Packaging also plays a role with 100% recycled boxes, water-soluble and biodegradable garment bags, and natural wax stamps favoured over stickers.
