About the Brand

Christopher Raeburn has established his eponymous brand with sustainable and intelligent fashion design for a global audience. The RÆMADE ethos in particular has pioneered the reworking of surplus fabrics and garments to create distinctive and functional pieces.

Alongside this, a highly collaborative spirit informs luxurious, handcrafted and award-winning products with integrity and purpose. This innovative approach, with an unusual balance of high concept, accessibility and wearability, is applied to menswear, womenswear, luggage and accessories.

With its RÆBURN Lab in the heart of east London, RÆBURN is stocked in the best stores globally and receives media coverage worldwide.

“It is Mr Raeburn’s clear vision of clothes that protect man and the planet
that make him an original and exceptional designer”

Our Ethos

Every decision we make as a business is underpinned by the 4 R’s;
RÆMADE, RÆDUCED, RÆCYCLED and RÆBURN.

RÆMADE

Paramount to the RÆBURN philosophy since 2001 is RÆMADE – reworking surplus materials, products and artefacts into completely new designs. Every RÆMADE piece is a limited edition, proudly cut and reconstructed in England.

RÆDUCED

Designs developed at the RÆBURN Lab are considered for their impact on the environment. Whether reworking surplus materials, minimising carbon footprint with local manufacturing, or simply producing smaller batches, waste can be RÆDUCED.

RÆCYCLED

Seeking the most sustainable materials around the globe, and working with responsible manufacturing partners is key to the RÆBURN brand. RECYCLING pre-existing materials and harnessing green technologies is fundamental to the production process.

SUSTAINABILITY & INTEGRITY

The RÆBURN RÆMADE philosophy has its origins in his fascination with military materials and utilitarian clothing. Established in 2010, Christopher’s never-ending ‘archaeological’ discoveries led to his first full collection (AW10 PREPARE) using de-commissioned military stock to create limited edition outerwear for both men and women. From wool field jackets to nylon parachute canopies, each RÆMADE style is produced by meticulously deconstructing the original and reworking the materials into unique and ethical garments.

“I think as a designer you have an obligation to consider what you are doing and why; ultimately, we want to make strong, sustainable choices that provide our customers with a completely unique and desirable product”
