From the founders
Updated: Mar 10
In staying true to one of our key values of "being obsessed with our community", we have decided to start a newsletter and blog to continue to keep close to our ecosystem.
"obsessed with our community"
As a startup, we find that our time is almost always grossly focused on piloting, testing, and iterating new ways to divert the fashion industry's waste from landfill, amplifying our social impact, and continuing to improve our business model and value proposition. In all of that, it is easy for us to get lost in these goals and negate bringing our ecosystem along with us on this journey.
On the first of November 2020, we did our very first collection. What an incredible 4 years it has been working on Rewoven! From a Stor-Age storage unit in Claremont to the back of a clothing factory alleyway to our own warehouse, when I count my blessings, being able to dedicate myself on a daily to realize our vision is a blessing I count twice. The wins, losses, mistakes, and invaluable lessons this journey has provided have impacted my personal growth in such a profound way.
To our dedicated and hardworking team members, every client past and present, our service providers, our community, friends of Rewoven, and our investors and partners - we offer our gratitude. You have all contributed significantly to getting us this far.
We hope this will be a useful touchpoint to stay connected with the pulse of Rewoven.
For the next 4 years of being obsessed with our community and its sustainability, seeking learning and improvement, and fostering a culture of excellence.
Tshepo Bhengu, Chief Operations Officer
