Rated: Great

Murray Jacket – Ships internationally from Hong Kong

The R Collective’s womenswear collections are made by reusing rescued excess materials from leading luxury brands and reputable manufacturers. The brand uses a high-proportion of eco-friendly materials, which limits the amount of chemicals, water, and wastewater used in production. It also ensures the payment of a living wage in its supply chain, which is why we rated it ‘Great’! The Murray jacket is a limited-edition piece, created with an enormous labour of love, from deconstructing and unpicking robust uniforms—then cleaning, ironing, and meticulous pattern making.
