The fashion industry is the second biggest polluter on the planet. Globally, it produces 92 million tonnes of textile waste each year & is responsible for 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
With the rise of Fast Fashion, we have seen huge pressures on land & water. They are often left ravaged & polluted from toxic chemicals, which leaks into the surrounding ecosystems. Nothing can live within it & nothing can live from it.
Vintage & secondhand is the kindest way to wear clothes. There is zero fabric production. By only using what is already there, we're extending the life of a garment by ReLoving or ReMaking it & keeping it out of landfill.
Everything at Latham Street is ReMade right here in sunny Southend-on-Sea, by our incredible in-house team. We're always working on ways to keep our whole business sustainable AF, from the recycled clothing labels & packaging, to our store being fitted with repurposed wood & metal fixtures.
Looking good shouldn't cost the earth & it doesn't have to.
