2nd Existence - Re-crafted Barbour Jacket
A true recycled brand that started in 2019, giving rise to a new concept of “2nd Existence”
Our brand is all about “Up-Recycling” of garments.
2nd Existence takes used apparel from apparel items all around the world, specifically choosing popular exported garments and fashion items.
The items are purchased by our specialist buyers who are looking for the correct fabrics, designs, colors and quality.
We import these used garments into Japan. Japan once had a strong garment manufacturing industry, now it is in decline.
We are re-igniting the industry once more, giving capacity to under-utilized suppliers across Japan. Utilizing their skill, technical abilities and quality only found with products MADE IN JAPAN.
The term “2nd Existence” pay tribute to both garment and manufacturer.
Giving the clothing and factories a 2nd Existence.
This project delivers clean used clothing re-made into items that have great design and function.
There is no smell or odor in our clothing, we have developed a special washing and anti-bacterial deodorization process to ensure high levels of hygiene. We call it ‘Hygienic Existence’.
On a worldwide stage 2nd Existence will also contribute to the sustainability charity “1% to the Planet’ which donates 1% of Profits to the charity for environmental purposes.
