Operates In


Res-Res was founded in 2015 by Søren and Lars who are since then united in the desire to making fashion that is as sustainable as possible accessible for as many people as possible. From the beginning, Res-Res was much more than a retail store in Copenhagen and a web-shop. It is a little universe to inspire and challenge each other to continue the path towards a fashion industry that is in harmony with planet and people, rather than harming them. Over the years, Res-Res has grown in size and new team members joined, each of them contributing with their own expertise and diverse backgrounds. Our vision is to improve the fashion industry and to contribute to drive the change we want to see through our everyday actions. We carefully select the brands we work with, and we only offer products that are made with respect to resources. This includes respect for the people involved in the production process, as well as respect for our planet. We become wiser every day, and this knowledge is reflected in the choices we make. Transparency and information are key to making responsible choices, and we are here to share our extensive knowledge on materials, production processes, care instructions and social issues related to the fashion industry with you.
