Upcycling brand RE;CODE

RE;CODE, Korea's leading upcycling fashion brand launched in 2012, brings new life to discarded clothing stock by adding creative ideas. Unsold clothing is normally incinerated three years after the release. Instead, RE;CODE recreates clothes by dismantling and reassembling deadstock. Due to the nature of this manual process, all RE;CODE products are produced in limited quantities, making them even more valuable. RE;CODE is divided into the Collection line infused with artistic designer sensibility and Re;nano, a more casual line made of eco-friendly materials and subsidiary materials from deadstock. RE;CODE is further expanding the scope of upcycled materials to industrial waste such as airbags and car seats. In recognition of the brand's craftsmanship, experimentation, and aesthetics, RE;CODE has been invited to numerous events at home and abroad. It has also held upcycling workshops, supported the employment of single mothers through BOX ATELIER, and ran the Re;light project for refugees. These efforts to reach underserved communities have been regarded as an excellent example of CSR.

The NOACH Project is KOLON SPORT's campaign launched in 2016 to protect endangered animals and plants in Korea. Each year, the project selects one endangered animal or plant as the theme and turns their story into "clothes" in an effort to raise awareness. Part of the proceeds is donated to environmental groups, and from 2020, all NOACH collection projects have been made with 100% eco-friendly materials and techniques.
