Described by Vogue as “One of the most innovative fashion companies in the world” it’s no surprise that Been London landed a solid position in this year’s Escape 100. Across the world, each year we dump 2.12 billion tonnes of waste. And the all-female based team based in East London are doing something about it. How? By getting hold of what normally gets discarded and turning it into beautiful things that people will want to wear every day. To name a few of the materials they’ve sourced and recycled to craft their accessories: fabric made from tannery off-cut leather, discarded clothes, single-use plastic bottles, and even apple skins. Whether you’re looking for the hottest new accessory or a role at a purpose-driven company - there’s no doubt that BEEN London are one to watch.
