Ræburn is a collaborative, creative fashion studio where daily design meets responsible production.
The brands highly collaborative spirit informs elevated, handcrafted and award-winning products with distinct utilitarian value and purpose. This innovative approach, with an unusual balance of high concept, accessibility and wearability, is applied to menswear, womenswear, luggage and accessories.
Established in 2009, by Christopher Raeburn, whose never-ending ‘archaeological’ discoveries led to the first full collection (AW10 PREPARE) using de-commissioned military stock to create limited edition outerwear for both men and women. From wool field jackets to nylon parachute canopies, the collections encompassed the brands RÆMADE style, meticulously deconstructing original artefacts and reworking the materials into unique and responsible garments.
The design ethos of Ræburn has been informed by 3 main principles, ‘Ræmade, Ræduced, and Ræcycled.’ From concept to completion, each collection, each garment has been meticulously graded against these values.
The Ræmade ethos in particular pioneers the reworking of surplus fabrics and garments to create innovative and functional pieces. Boasting a highly collaborative spirit that informs elevated, handcrafted products with distinct utilitarian value and purpose.
Established as a reaction to the mounting material and inventory crisis, Ræmade is all about effectively repurposing pre-existing materials, setting the precedent for the messages to be conveyed throughout each category (Ræduced, and Ræcycled) within the collections.
Dedicated to disrupting the status quo and to constantly challenging practices, Ræburn is an advocate for elevated, responsible design. Its DNA is infused with collaborative partnerships, each carefully considered in order to engineer better systems to reduce waste, improve knowledge and the uptake of responsible practices across sectors. Creating an accessible portal of responsible design for the whole community.
