Rakha

While fashion is transient, our ethos is drawn from the classics: understated, contemporary garments. Rakha does not follow seasons or trends but rather focuses on re-designing those classic pieces. The brands' approach to sustainability is through creating garments made from virgin bio-based or recycled  biological materials. We aim to achieve a closed loop system where everything is either a technical or biological nutrition for their next life-cycle phase.

Current linear production processes place economic gains above environmental and ethical considerations, causing large amount of waste and pollution threatening people and our planet. Rakha was created with the idea of re-defining classics, considering design for longevity and the materials in mind to ensure a circular approach is taken from the design stage throughout the whole processes involved in its supply chain with a Life Cycle Thinking approach.
