About Us

The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries to date. Millions of pieces of clothing are produced every day. We buy them, only to quickly replace them under the influence of the newest seasonal trends. In doing so, we discard items that are oftentimes barely worn, sometimes even new.

Instead of sticking to this crazy industry standard, we have decided to do things a little differently. At riyō, we don't actually produce new clothing: we upcycle and repurpose all of our items from ready-made clothes.  

How does this work? Well, first we carefully select second-hand pieces, which are then printed and re-branded by hand in our own studio. This is a truly joyous process: boundless creativity through the re-appreciation of discarded items.

So what can you expect? A combination of great quality and bold graphics to provide you with unique items that actually feel good to wear.
