Aēsop unveils inaugural joint venture with Raeburn
Australian skincare brand Aēsop has unveiled the first products from its collaboration with London-based sustainable fashion brand, Raeburn, including a portable pouch for on-the-go hand care.


The beauty brand announced the joint venture with Raeburn back in October 2020 and stresses that the first products from the two have “equal emphasis on style and function”.


The first product is a portable pouch for on-the-go hand care, available in three variants, which has been handcrafted from pre-consumer recycled cotton. The Adventurer Roll Up design features three purpose-fit pockets to house a trio of Aēsop products to cleanse and hydrate the hands when commuting, travelling, or simply out-and-about.

As part of this inaugural partnership, Aēsop and Raeburn have applied the ethos of the Raemade initiative, which pioneers the reworking of surplus fabrics to create responsible designs, to create 300 limited-edition Raemade Adventurer Roll Ups made from 1960s aeronautical navigation maps.

These silk relics have been specially chosen for their subject-matter, each detailing a part of the world particularly damaged through environmental degradation, including Borneo and the Aral Sea, explained Aēsop in a press release. 

Four roll ups can be made from just one map, leaving minimal waste, and each resulting Roll Up comes with a unique serial number and certificate. 

The Adventurer Roll-Up is priced at 45 pounds and is available at Aēsop, while the Raemade Adventurer Roll Up is 70 pounds, and is exclusive to hbx.com through a partnership with Hypebeast.
 
In addition, Aēsop is also sharing the pattern for the Roll Up in the “spirit of reworking materials” so anyone handy with a sewing machine can download the pattern to make the practical pouch at home. A ‘How To’ film will also be available to guide both seasoned sewers and keen beginners, on both brand’s websites.

Nylon brand Nilit has partnered with The Ocean Foundation on its Blue Resilience Initiative.

Joining The Ocean Foundation’s Blue Resilience Initiative, the collaboration aims to protect essential ocean meadows and other coastal habitats. According to Nilit, marine grasslands are being damaged at the rate of two football fields per hour. As important oceanic ecosystems, the grasslands help to reduce global warming by taking CO2 from the atmosphere.

Nilit, which also owns sustainable brand Sensil, has previously stated that protecting the oceans and reducing CO2 is part of its Total Product Sustainability Program. Recently, it reduced CO2 emissions at its main facility, and has utilised clean energy techniques at its manufacturing plants.

“NILIT and The Ocean Foundation can affect both sides of the ocean health equation and, together, make a more substantial impact on the well-being of our oceans and our planet,” said head of global marketing at Nilit, Sagee Aran.

The Ocean Foundation’s Blue Resilience Initiative focuses on coastal reconstruction and providing carbon offsets for foundations, corporations, donors and events. Its work notes the ecological and social impact that coastal areas have on the world, with man made infrastructure degrading nature’s natural defense mechanisms. The Blue Initiative seeks to restore and protect these coastal habitats.

“We are excited to join in The Ocean Foundation’s crucial work to protect the marine ecosystems that sustain life in the oceans and on land,” said Aran. “The Ocean Foundation investment, we have expanded our vision far beyond the traditional supply chain structure so that we can more rapidly and effectively bring about positive environmental impact.”

“As the world prepares for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) summit this November, the importance of climate change and looking after our planet has been more prominent than ever,” stated Farleigh Hungerford, Farly’s founder, in a release.

She continued: “Farly only encourages the sale of vintage, pre-loved and second-hand items and we really encourage sellers to have sustainability at heart, from packaging to thinking about the origin of the product all the way to the end of the items’ life cycle.

“Farly adds to this message with the core values at the heart of the business, encouraging users to re-use, recycle and restyle.”

The platform will also feature a reward system, called Farly Points, where sellers can earn points through promoting sales from curated items in their virtual shop windows. Building up points can contribute to discounts for users with the monetisation of their displays.
