Our Story

Rentrayage was born out of the concept of reimagining and reanimating what has already existed; creating beauty and value, new shape, new form, new style from what has been discarded.  

Inspired by Louise Bourgeois, Rentrayage is a French word to mend and to “make whole again,“ we bring old clothes, vintage fabrics, and dead-stock back to life. But this goes beyond stitching things back together in a new way; this is the groundwork for a new way of thinking along with innovative methods. 

As a sustainable small business, we work to continuously improve and learn. Learn more about our sustainability efforts here.

Making Rentrayage

From Our Founder

Designing into a concept creates waste in the name of creativity. Inherently unsustainable, it requires you to add and overdo. Rentrayage is a rejection of this prodigal business model and our way of reimagining and reanimating what has already existed; creating beauty and value; new shape, new form, new style from what has been discarded.  

Down to Rentrayage’s foundation — ours is a fresh and conscientious approach to fashion. The Collection is entirely handcrafted in New York and Brooklyn, each piece is one-of-a-kind or limited edition. 

Always maintaining 100% sustainability, as we continue to grow and refine our process to consumption, our Home and Beauty offerings complement our burgeoning but strictly curated catalog. So have a look and shop confidently knowing that the purchase of a Rentrayage product is creating the least waste possible.
