Global design company West Elm and EILEEN FISHER debut a sustainably made collection of home decor and furniture designed with upcycled EILEEN FISHER Denim materials, giving denim a second life beyond the closet. Both retailers shared a vision to develop responsible designs using conscientious manufacturing centered around a zero-waste system to create home products with less environmental impact. The limited-edition collection interprets EILEEN FISHER’s Renew program to a selection of pillows and casual seating available at WestElm.com/EileenFisher and EileenFisher.com. The collaboration marks the first time EILEEN FISHER brings its industry-changing 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. With these beautiful designs, we are extending each garment’s life cycle and drastically reducing the waste that we put out into the world. As other brands join our mission, we will increase the potential to create positive change in the way we manufacture — by being kinder to the planet,” said Eileen Fisher, founder and co-CEO.
The West Elm + EILEEN FISHER collection is uniquely crafted using a process that begins by deconstructing previously owned denim garments donated by customers as part of EILEEN FISHER’s 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.”
