Self Initiated – ReBonding
ReBonding is a brand centred around re-defining how we look at and treat our belongings. With an ever-changing culture surrounding purchasing, fast furniture has become more prevalent. Buying new is convenient and easier to do, and we see more swapping out of trends and aesthetics. ReBonding gives users a chance for their possessions to grow alongside them instead of replacing them. ReBonding was developed as a way of allowing users to re-connect and find new value in their tired possessions, with a focus on furniture. The process is achieved through rejuvenating each piece of furniture by pairing them with another unique piece of someone else’s history and story through material. Each possession is fused to craft a brand new, one-of-a-kind piece, with an aesthetic change as well as a new meaning and value with emphasis on the new story which has been created and continues on. Currently based in the UK, ReBonding blends cultures and communities and hopes to expand and reach further destinations and people.
