The collaboration marks the first time Eileen Fisher brings its denim felting method to an exclusive collection with a major home retailer.
“Our team was delighted to partner with West Elm because of our shared passion for creating responsibly designed products,” said Eileen Fisher, found and co-CEO of eponymous company. “With these beautiful designs, we are extending each garment’s life cycle and drastically reducing the waste that we put out into the world.”
The West Elm + Eileen Fisher Collection begins by deconstructing previously owned denim garments donated by customers of the Renew program. The upcycled fabric is meticulously washed, repaired and hand-layered into intricate and thoughtfully designed patterns, making each piece in the collection one-of-a-kind.
“Eileen Fisher leads the apparel industry in sustainable innovation and has developed a transformative technology that allows us to introduce circular design to a collection of textiles for the home,” said Alex Bellos, president of West Elm. “Together, we are bridging our shared commitments to responsible retail and great design to offer quality, artful pieces.”
Beginning Aug. 25, customers can shop the limited-edition collection of eight pieces, including pillow covers in white and indigo, red and dark indigo, priced from $159 to $169; and a lounge chair, priced at $1,999.
