Today 30% of all clothing products made end up in landfill. 10% of global carbon emissions are attributed to the fashion industry.
Unmade are building the digital infrastructure to enable a demand-driven apparel industry. Their patented technology allows you to design and customise clothing yourself, so brands only make what will actually sell. This reduces waste, helps the planet, and supports a more sustainable, ethical economy.
Today, Unmade works with some of the most recognisable fashion and sportswear brands, such as New Balance. See the 111 Knit shoe and read more about this "audacious project".

Unmade was founded in 2013 by Hal, Kirsty and Ben. Read this interview with Ben.
We're well-backed by the likes of Octopus Ventures. Our clients are high-volume/big subscriptions so generate solid revenue, which has allowed us to navigate the pandemic.
Unmade won Drapers' Best Digital Innovation award, was nominated as one of Fast Company's Most Innovative, and recently joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's CE100 Programme, helping the world transition to a more circular economy.
What’s it like working at Unmade?
Unmade is a friendly, enthusiastic team who share the belief that the fashion industry needs radical change. We have a dynamic, supportive environment and strive to ensure everyone can do their best work and have fun whilst doing so.
We are building a product to have a lasting, positive impact on the fashion and sportswear industries, and the planet. We care about the work we do, are passionate about doing it, and are supportive of everyone to do the same.
We push for the best, but know that even with the best laid plans things can go wrong. Failure is not a dirty word, and we’re ok sharing when it happens. We value learning from each other and sharing what we do. No one is unapproachable, and everyone’s voice matters.
We care about helping the tech industry become a more inclusive, diverse place and strive to lead by example. We encourage everyone to bring their whole selves to work, regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or disability.
We are greater than the sum of our parts.
You act for the good of the group before your own. You show passion for what we do and why we’re doing it. You share openly, broadly, and deliberately. You take time out with the team. You call out and celebrate our achievements.
We make a positive difference.
You identify your boundaries, and push them. You go out of your way to help others because nothing is not your problem. You give, ask for, and embrace candid feedback. You celebrate diversity and do your bit to be inclusive of everyone. You take action to reduce your impact on the planet.
We strive for a better solution.
You challenge the status quo. You take smart risks to solve a problem. You make decisions quickly instead of waiting for the perfect answer. You radiate intent, and then turn those intentions into actions.We embrace change.You search for the best ideas with an open mind. You experiment willingly. You welcome error as an opportunity to learn and improve.
We assume best intent.
You reflect before reacting. You hold others to account but never assign blame. You truly believe that everyone - from customers, colleagues, visitors and factory workers, to delivery drivers, interns, cleaners and managers - is doing the best they can, with the knowledge, abilities and resources they have at the time.
