Harmony Richards and Shilpa Iyengar, the co-founders of Alterre.
Alterre is a sustainably driven interchangeable footwear brand based in the United States. It was created in 2015 by co-founders and besties Harmony Richards and Shilpa Iyengar. They are advocates of gender equity and work with women-led businesses across their supply chain. Alterre is also committed to responsible production practices ranging from fair pay to low waste. Lastly, Alterre gives 5% of its profit to Restore NYC, a nonprofit providing long-term rehabilitation for survivors of sex trafficking.
For this mini capsule collection we worked with Alterre's solo straps, otherwise unusable into these limited edition, one of a kind bags. We will be releasing one bag a week from April 21st into May 19th to promote collaboration through Upcyling by marrying our waste materials.
25% of sales will be donated to Remake, a global advocacy group whose mandate it is to fight for fair pay and climate justice within the clothing industry.
Check out the Alterre X Agent Reclaim section in the shop for each week's drop and support two strong businesses and Remake!

An upcycled capsule collection is a relevant and meaningful way to engage in the circular economy by marrying purpose and value to your brand while diverting downstream textiles from becoming waste.
