Because of fashion’s CO2 emissions, we reached a point where we shouldn’t be allowed to produce any more raw materials. Instead, our obligation is to research and resource what we already have and ultimately redesign, rework and re-sell products made of those existing materials that are considered “waste”.
Because waste is, in fact, a design flaw.
The Lost Kids collect what’s considered waste, values it as a resourceful raw material and produces brand new garments from it, for its Upcycling line.
We research stock fabric from recycling companies, closing textile industries or year’s back dead-stock from fellow brands
We also collect other resourceful waste (e.g. coffee bean bags, seatbelts, airbags, etc.)
We create specific designs that can accommodate the different types of fabric available (e.g. the same design of a shirt made of linen, silk, cotton, etc.)
We send our designs to production
As a result we produce a large quantity of brand new clothes, most of which are limited edition, while reducing waste on nation-wide scale
The Lost Kids also runs a reworked second hand line from locally pre-owned clothes.
We firstly collect pre-loved items
We select those that are suitable for a re-style
Then we cut them, draw on them, patch them up again together, so they can adopt a The Lost Kids aesthetic and identity
The clothing items which are not adequate for rebranding are either given to charities or used for our upcycling accessory line. Nothing goes to the trash!
BOTH LINES GIVE VALUE AGAIN TO WHAT, OTHERWISE, WOULD HAVE BEEN THROWN AWAY.
