About White Rose Recycled Fashion
White Rose Recycled Fashion was established as a social enterprise in 2009 by two creative Nottingham Trent University graduates who were truly inspired by the work of Aegis Trust, that charity which White Rose supports.
White Rose, a charity shop with a difference, offers lovingly hand-picked recycled clothes – valuing people, our planet and clothing, in a manner reflective of the organisational values.
What Makes Us Different?
At White Rose, we infuse our passion for fashion with our care for people and the planet, creating a fun and sustainable shopping experience which ensures you look amazing, spend less and make a positive difference.
We’re driven by a distinct purpose to reduce fast fashion’s impact on the environment, reduce textile waste, and encourage our customers to make kinder choices when it comes to purchasing and repurposing clothing. Our circular fashion model means we disregard the corporate ‘take-make-dispose’ pattern and ensure fashion garments are worn for as long as they can be and then transformed through upcycling and recycling after that.
Our seven stylish stores in Nottinghamshire and our online store provide a great selection of carefully handpicked brand name fashion pieces, with plenty of inspiration for those wanting to choose sustainable shopping. This means you can follow your unique style as well as keep up with the latest trends – amazing, right?
Our emphasis on high quality, handpicked recycled fashion has led to the stores and online shop to being in high demand. We feature branded and even new fashion items for sale, meaning you can get your hands on luxury second-hand designer clothing without the premium price tag. Additionally, our online and retail stores are constantly being updated with fresh, new lines with hundreds of new items added into each store every day, so you’re always sure to find something perfectly suited to you.
White Rose shops on the high street have a distinctive look and feel which make shopping with us simple and fun. We understand shopping second-hand is a new experience for some, so we work hard to ensure all our clothes are of the best quality and have been inspected prior to sale.
