About RECRAFTinc

Sales 88
On Etsy since 2011

At Recraft, we embrace a sustainable approach to fashion. We began with the simple idea of upcycling worn out jeans, and from that, our philosophy was born: The world does not need more new fabrics; it needs less. So we take vintage clothing apart at the seams, repurposing it as our new fabric. Because at Recraft, Blue is the new green.
Our bags are made from upcycled jeans, left-over fabric, and remnants from the manufacturing process. The interior of the bag is lined with a smooth and durable fabric. As makers, we believe in salvaging and preserving. We are redefining fashion one scrap at a time.

Our craft

Recraft products are mindfully made in small batches in Toronto, Canada. Our process is cruelty-free from start to finish. Through a systematic process of development, experimentation and refinement, each piece is thoughtfully designed, made to last, and made to be treasured. We design our products with living in mind. We focus on function and wearablity. Each detail is designed to enhance our life.
