ECO Team (archive)

The ECO Team of the National Fashion League Hungary integrates designers, artists and professionals working with the principles of environmental consciousness and sustainability from the source of the fabrics to the sales.  Many of the prefer the recycling and upcyling technics and zero waste production in order to follow a circular fashion model instead of the common”make-take-waste”  linear one.

Our “brand”, RECONs includes REthinking and CONsciousness that assign our attitude to the community and to the environment with social and ethical aspects as well. Using natural fabrics, such as organic cotton, bamboo, linen, ramie, peace silk etc. is more than important for our designers.

Our team shares the eco-lifestyle as well and at our fashion shows we prefer the organic product lines regarding the make-up and hairdressing of the models.  

We motivate the young people and the buyers to choose sustainable and ethical fashion products sharing the opinion of Vivienne Westwood:

Buy less. Choose well. Make it last. Quality, not quantity.

Retextil Alapítvány (Retextile Foundation) produces eco-design interior decorations and fashion products made of household textile waste. This non-profit foundation is located in Pécs. As its main activity it produces eco-design interior decorations and fashion products made of household textile waste with the help of disabled and changed working ability employees. Art activity, community- and work therapy, rehabilitation take place at the workflow at the same time.

Reciklista was founded by Sarolta Tripolszky in 2013 when she returned to Budapest after working several years as an environmental lobbyist in Brussels. Here, she came to the conclusion that a more sustainable word can only be reached through changing our lifestyles, and everyday behaviour. Reciklista promotes the green, conscious urban lifestyle which is becoming more and more popular around the word but is still not very present in Hungary. Reciklista’s two main ways of communication are fashion and DIY. The fashion collections consists of sporty, functional cloths with a distinguishable character. Besides, Recilista also organises DIY recycling workshops for the green Budapest community where fashionistas can create their own jewellery and accessories from waste.

ReCreativity is a social enterprise that provides short and long term programs with the tool of creative recycling in order to participants build creative solutions and skills in their everyday life and in the meantime inquire environmental awareness. You can join their international & national youth programs and creative workshops. Besides that they can be found in different design markets – inside and outside of Hungary – where they usually present with a creative workshop and with their products.

Réthy Fashion prepares fashionable, sporty and elegant everyday-wear made of worn out denim clothes. Their goal is to make recycling real. It is impossible to see that their products were made of wasted clothes, they all seem like they were made of brand new materials. The magic is simple: they clean collected fabrics, process them, dye them, finally tailor and sew the design dreamed. Their social participation is remarkable. Numerous people with disabilities are employed by the enterprise. Réthy Fashion believes that work therapy helps them gaining selfconfidence and their mental state in order to get back into the labour market faster and with more success.
