Better Brand Edit: 14 Fashion Brands That Offer Repairs

This is a sponsored article featuring brands that have been independently assessed by our rigorous ratings system. We’re proud to only collaborate with “Good” and “Great” rated brands. Learn more.

 

Making your clothes last longer is the most sustainable thing you can do for your wardrobe, and repairs are key to that. Happily, more brands are now directly offering repair services to help you extend the life of your wardrobe. Read on to discover our favourites.

Why repairing your clothes matters

We often emphasise that the key to a more sustainable wardrobe is prolonging your clothes’ lifespan and wearing them until they are worn out. It saves you money in the long run, and Orsola de Castro, co-founder of Fashion Revolution, says that extending wear from one to two years slashes your clothes’ carbon footprint by 24%.

And whether you’re handy with a needle and thread or prefer professional assistance, there are plenty of options available for mending your clothes. Your local tailor, menders, and needleworkers are often able to repair most garments. But to make circular choices easier, many brands are rolling out convenient repair services or programs that help you work with local artisans. Here, we’ve curated a list of top-rated brands committed to reducing fashion’s impact, stitch by stitch. Let’s dive in!

Why you can trust our recommendations

At Good On You, we provide trustworthy recommendations that align with your values and needs. Our mission is to simplify informed choices while embracing the “buy less, buy better” motto.

To ensure credibility, we aggregate comprehensive, transparent information on fashion sustainability—assessing brands using our leading methodology developed by diverse experts. Our ratings directory of over 5,000 brands employs a simple five-point scale, curating a list of “Good” or “Great” brands making significant contributions to sustainable fashion.

Our editorial team, driven by expertise and passion, carefully reviews and approves each recommendation, upholding high standards of quality, longevity, and trend-transcendence.

While we recognise the value of reusing, mending, and second hand shopping, our expert ratings system guides you toward new brands aligned with your values and sustainability goals.
