ReSpiin started as a brand of recycled textiles, but when working on the range they decided they wanted to expand into renewable products too. At the time the interest in sustainable sourcing was growing, and so a brand that focusing either on reusing unwanted materials, or using materials that grow sustainably, felt like something the market needed.
Although the materials were key, so was the design. The brand wanted ReSpiin to be a brand that people were proud to feature in their homes. So htey started working with the team on colour palletts and designs, and finding a manufacturer to make baskets from renewable materials such as jute.
ReSpiin is about working directly with pioneering producers who add the most value possible to the materials they have to work with. Each of the producers have been visited and have seen first hand how they take pride in what they produce and in how they treat their workers.
