DELEITEWEAR is a hip and sustainable Spanish fashion brand that gives pre-loved clothing a second life by upcycling it.
Fair trade: The atelier that makes the clothes is located in Madrid and was founded by a partnership of women committed to empowering other women. They help women at risk of social exclusion make clothes and teach them about sustainability principles. For example, several women are employed who have previously been discriminated against because of their gender or age. Deleite visits the studio regularly and works closely together with them so they can learn from each other.
Environmentally friendly: Deleite uses old garments and gives them a new life. The material supplier is a Spanish NGO, which collects unwanted clothing all over Spain for resale or donation. They hire people at risk of social exclusion and support them by providing new opportunities for people and clothing.
Locally produced: the items are made in Spain, within Europe.
Good cause: both the studio and the material supplier support people at risk of social exclusion. These people are offered the opportunity to work in a pleasant and fair environment.
