welcome to hood vintage
At hood vintage we believe more can be done to persuade younger people to lower their clothing consumption. The textile industry creates more co2 emissions than aviation and shipping combined. We would love to see people wearing more pre-loved stuff, and that’s why we have put together a team of buyers and bloggers who do the hard bit for you – we source the most popular, fashionable and stylish clothing to make buying vintage more easy for you.
Buying vintage is more than just enjoying unique and classic clothes. The 'fast fashion' industry generates 100 billion garments per year and is one of the most polluting industries in the world, after oil.
We are conscious of the impact our business has on the world around us - that’s why we distribute vintage clothing only - it is a step away from the fast fashion mentality and it’s unethical and unsustainable impact on our world.
Our garments have been carefully selected by our own bloggers and buyers, to ensure we are at the forefront of the sustainable fashion movement.
Our garments are often salvaged, up-cycled and sold by various means including:
- Washing to remove stains
We buy quality over quantity, knowing our clothes will last for years and decades to come. It’s hard not to be enchanted by a piece of clothing with such a huge sense of history attached to it!
how buying vintage helps
In the UK alone, we throw away 300,000 tonnes of clothing every year. By supporting vintage brands, you will alleviate the problem of textiles going to landfill and being replaced by fast fashion labels in an endless and unsustainable cycle.
Choosing upcycled, second-hand vintagewear gives our clothing a new lease of life and leaves a much lower carbon footprint. The production of these clothes has already ended decades ago and we are here to recycle these timeless pieces.
We want to be at the forefront of sustainable fashion. Our obsession with sustainability means that each part of our supply-chain is blanketed with eco-friendly policies, from choosing green-couriers to pairing up with offset.earth – we want you to feel good about your passion for clothing.
Thank you for choosing Hood Vintage and helping to reduce the fashion industries impact on the world.
