Today there already are more textiles produced in the world today than can be used. Tons and tons of textiles are sent to the landfill every year. In textile production there will always be waste materials, energy, water and chemicals. Upcycling is a working way we follow for a relatively large amount of our waste.
Upcycling garments and fabrics stop adding stuff to a world that is already overwhelmed with material things. It also reuses materials that may otherwise end up in the landfill in creative and innovative ways – producing original often one-of-a-kind items from what many consider to be waste. At Mini Rodini, we see it as a way to create new products with new value and purpose, like our patchwork blankets and our latest news while at the same time, it makes us take responsibility of the resources we have already used and minimize our waste to landfill. Upcycling garments is not the same as recycling. Recycling takes consumer materials and breaks them down so their base materials can be remade into a new product. When a product is upcycled, the materials are not broken down and less energy is used. It makes a positivt impact since it removes items from the global, total garbage stream.

Exclusive and upcycled easter news! Find our very best basics in a new sunny colour and a very limited edition. We really love our basic selection made from 100% GOTS certified cotton, and we wanted to add some more. These shining new yellow pieces are also upcycled, meaning that they are made from leftover fabrics from previous production that has been collected and converted to get new use and value. Upcycling is only one of the things we do to take responsibility of the resources we have already used and minimize our waste to landfill.
Upcycled easter eggs for everyone!

Our instagram account (not to mention the hashtag #minirodini!) is just too much cuteness to handle sometimes, here are some of our spring favs:
05 March 2015
Spring is here! Our spring and summer is inspired by the fishy life under the aquatic surface in colours of sea weed green, ocean blue, sand, sunset pink and Florida orange. This season, mermaids, mermans, whales, dolphins, sea birds and crocodiles go swimmingly and sustainably together.
We have made jackets to wear on stormy salty waters and sun hats, caps and shades that protect you from the scorching sun in the Everglades of Florida. See you later alligator is filled with sustainable pieces for all occasions, but most practical to wear on dry land. Except for the large and fancy swim-collection, of course! It is made from the finest weave, recycled from PET bottles and other plastic waste. The very same waste that are likely to float around polluting our seas and marine mammals often eat them and die.
96% of the collection is made from sustainable materials. So now there's even more stylishly sustainable dresses, shorts, sweaters and t-shirts online and in our stores. Find your favourite sustainable spring styles and feel proud that you actually are a part of making an environmental change.

This spring, Mini Rodini has taken another big sustainable step - the SS15 Collection See You Later Alligator is is made of 96% sustainable materials. When Mini Rodini first started in 2006, the aim was to add something new and something better to a market that was already rapidly growing. As our company and the collections keep growing, so is our sustainable range. Today, we are very happy to say that we carry one of the most sustainable ranges of kids clothes on the market. Having nearly 90% of our products in sustainable materials every year, clearly makes us a front-runner among our closest competitors, who has up to around 20%.
But we also know that sustainability means much more than the materials we choose to work with. It’s about building a business that recognises both impact and responsibility. At Mini Rodini, we want what we do to matter. We take our ethical and sustainable commitment very seriously and we always improve to make even better products - for the environment, our customers and the people who make our products.
For the first time we have collected all our sustainability achievements in a sustainability report. To show partners and customers that our work always have a sustainable background and future - and why they are better than the non-sustainable. It is our obligation to make sure everyone involved in our products have safe employments and good working conditions. In this expanding phase, we will continue our mission to do the very best out of all we do. We have come far but have many challenges ahead, yet, having the right and fair approach like we do will make things possible.

Cassandra Rhodin, the founder of Mini Rodini:
- I'm a person with strong believes. For me sustainability comes first. It is no other way. I'm so proud of that we this season started paying living wages in India, one of our biggest producing markets.

This year, Mini Rodini started working with Fairtrade certified cotton clothes and accessories on almost 20% of the collections. In other words, we have a great selection of organic gift picks certified by both GOTS and Fairtrade! Super sustainable gifts for everyone - we've got beddings, printed cotton pieces, baby items and fun accessories!
For Mini Rodini, adding the Fairtrade is an extra third party security and control, especially in the early stages of the production process. Fairtrade certified products for Mini Rodini will always be organic as well and having certifications from two different third parties is an extra security and control that proves the product is sustainably and fairly made.
You will always find the Fairtrade logo on each product, but to make it even easier to find them we've gathered them all in one place! Find all our Fairtrade certified cotton pieces here. And if you want to learn more about our work with sustainability, have a look at our CSR page.

This week Vogue Magazine mentioned us in the Global Street Style Report, listing the 15 Coolest Neighborhoods in the World. Here is their motivation: Enter Södermalm, an island just to the south of the city’s center, where one can find top-notch vintage boutiques like Grandpa (which also sells Swedish labels including Rodebjer and Dagmar) to a comprehensive 'zine shop, cheekily named Papercut. Young parents: be sure to stop by the buzzy Mini Rodini outpost on Nytorgsgatan, famed for its funky children’s wear.
We couldn't agree more! Södermalm, more specifically 'SoFo', is where Mini Rodini opened up the very first store way back in 2006. And it's still there, of course. Have a look at our store page if you haven't already.
