Fashion generates 4% of the world’s waste each year, accounting for 92 million tonnes of landfill. Xupes promotes fashion re-cycling not only through its collection of pre-owned and vintage designer handbags for sale, but also through its consignment, exchange and 'sell an item' schemes. This culture of recycling helps to minimise the effects on the environment with fewer items contributing to the enormous amounts of waste each year. Emma has curated an edit of thirty pre-owned handbags, including unique, rare and one-off pieces which will be available to buy on Xupes.com from the 16th of October until the 13th of December. Xupes will donate a proportion from the sale of each bag from the collection to the UAL centre for sustainable fashion.
