Upcycling. For the good of it.
Refried turns dead-stock into revenue helping manufacturers and retailers cycle surplus inventory back into the marketplace. With our creative design processes and innovative upcycling methods, Refried transforms already printed/decorated apparel and soft goods of all types into stylish fashion garments and accessories with one-of-a-kind appeal. Designed and handcrafted in America, Refried Apparel is a refreshing new category and sustainable fashion at its best.
The Transformation. (We call it Refrying)
With a designer’s eye – as an artist uses a color pallet – tee shirts are sliced, diced and stitched into an array of colors and shapes. With pieces of your tee shirt’s graphics featured in the mix, each item becomes a unique work of art and a one-of-a-kind garment.
Refried's patented styles and product line is distinguished by an innovative component-panel, stitched design producing a dramatically new look in casualwear. Refried styles also include a distinctive over-lock stitch adding a unique and notable stylish touch.
Quality, Comfort & Fit.
All Refried products are made from a variety of apparel and soft good materials. Several styles are designed with drawstrings and ties for flexible fit and optimal comfort. And you bet, even the drawstrings and ties are upcycled – individually created from a slice of tee shirt that’s pulled, stretched and threaded for true-to-size waist fit and dress-length to your liking.
