Sit Back, Relax And Let The Grandad Company Take Care Of All Your Upcycled Needs

Reworked, unisex AND sustainable streetwear? It’s a done deal.


After growing fascinated with her grandad’s clothes as a child, founder and designer Jess Grech built The Grandad Company on an admiration for old clothes and a determination to continue the fight against fast fashion. 

With a mission to “breathe life into reclaimed vintage menswear for a new unisex generation,” The Grandad Company offers a range of high quality and sustainable clothing reworked from classic vintage garments, featuring brands such as Ralph Lauren, Ellesse, and Adidas. Committed to maintaining its environmental consciousness, the brand produces prints with exclusively environmentally-friendly dyes and uses 100% recycled packaging, following the five C’s as their core values: Care, Conscious, Convert, Create, Current. 

Speaking on her creative process, Grech states, “I produced this range by meticulously deconstructing original vintage items and reworking the materials into unique and ethical garments. Rejecting fast fashion by creating high-quality, long-lasting products that are fully circular, offers a repair and reuse program to push a sustainable lifestyle.” ´

Every collection is inspired by a grandad somewhere in the world, could it be yours next? Visit The Grandad Company to find out how to create an entire collection with your own grandfather as the concept. Best. Idea. Ever.
