Value in the details

Community united to reduce waste

R-Coat is a community-based brand that transforms broken umbrellas, a non-recyclable material, into sustainable fashion. They have 30+ broken umbrella collection points across Portugal and Italy where the community can drop it off helping them and also decreasing their footprint.

You might wonder...

To make your R-Coat product last as long as possible and preserve its beauty, we recommend a cold wash (30º) and not bleach, tumble dry or dry clean.

R-Coat has a small scale and handmade production. The broken umbrellas come from one of our many collection points and their fabric is prepared (cut, washed and ironed) by the team members in Lisbon, where quality control and shipping also take place. The deadstock fabric for the lining comes from the Portuguese textile factory Tetribérica and the sewing is done in a small atelier outside of Lisbon by a team of 5 seamstresses.
