OUR STORY

Can Pep Rey is an independent fashion label founded in 2014, under the Mediterranean sun.

The projects ethos is aimed towards a new way of slow living. Named after the Can Pep Rey Finca in Ibiza. Creative Directors, Lea Russ and Paul Conradi refer to the light, nature, smell and essence of the people of the island that serve as the biggest inspiration for the collections. 

For us, each season has become an extension of our founding principles. The quality, design process and environmental impact of each garment is carefully considered. Clean silhouettes, premium fabrics and unisex pieces are the core of each season. We are constantly informing ourselves and improving the way that we function as a business. Working on a small-scale with skilled production teams and as well as with our team situated in the heart of Gracia, Barcelona. Our showroom is another aspect of the Can Pep Rey universe, where we host exhibitions, concerts and dinners to connect and collaborate with our creative community. 

OUR PRINCIPLES

Collaboration

Creatives, independent thinkers, our colleagues and customers. Without the inspiring people around us we would not be doing what we love. We believe that each idea is stronger with a team behind it. The brand has become an extension of finding new and old friends all over the world. Traveling to different Pop-Up locations and experiencing new cultures. 

Process

Precision and process lead to functional designs that last a lifetime. This is why each step of the production, design and packaging is so important to us. Your Can Pep Rey piece has gone through many hands and lots of love and care before arriving in your wardrobe. 

Responsibility

To us, being a fashion brand today means being responsible in every aspect of what we do. Our goal is to achieve steps towards being more sustainable each season. This means that we have incorporated more eco-friendly fabrics, organic cottons and recycled materials.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY 

Our design philosophy is to be functional, timeless and comfortable. It is our goal to create garments that go against the grain of the fast fashion trend model. We want your Can Pep Rey garment to be the item you gravitate towards when you want to feel good and dressed for any occasion. By working with small-scale production teams and selecting premium fabrics from Italy, Japan and Portugal we can ensure the best quality from our side. Inspiration is all around us. Our Creative Directors find inspiration in nature, their travels and creatives around them. 

OUR APPROACH TO QUALITY, MANUFACTURING AND FABRICS 

One of the central elements of Can Pep Rey is quality. We won’t compromise in any aspect, that’s why we work with talented manufactures and closely with the design team to select fabrics that meet our high standards of quality. We encourage our community to approach life with the idea of slow living. Considering our environmental impact, consciously creating and wearing clothing that makes us feel good. 

Our knitwear factory in Belgium is located on the outskirts of Ghent. Here two brothers are continuing their family heritage and knitting with old and new machines for us, and some of Belgium ́s greatest designers. Their technical capabilities enable us to create high-quality knitwear with wool and cotton fibres that come from Italy. 

Our Japanese supplier makes a lot of our unique jerseys, t- shirts, sweatshirts and dresses. Japan is also a great market for Can Pep Rey. All of the garments we sell in Japan are sent directly to avoid unnecessary CO2- emissions through transport. 

Close to Venice and Vincenza in Italy, we make our classic jersey lines, alongside other internationally renowned luxury brands.

Our production partner in Portugal helps us create simple designs with attention to detail. The fabrics are sourced locally or imported from Italy when necessary. 

With Can Pep Rey we aim to propose a collection of clothes and items that match these feelings and desires. Clothing made from great quality, adaptable for any situation. The easiest wardrobe, giving comfort to any occasion.

OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY & TRANSPARENCY
We believe in a change and are committed to making more responsible choices. It is clear that humans are emitting too much carbon into the atmosphere, which makes the climate crisis seem impossible to confront. This is why informing one another and making our planets preservation a priority is key to us. By using pre-orders, dead stock fabric, recycled and eco-fibres and sustainable packaging we are making small steps, for a greener future. Transparency can be overshadowed by greenwashing jargon, but at Can Pep Rey we want our community to know more about each garment and its environmental impact. We have a customer care email, a detailed garment care section and our magazine platform is used to discuss different climate change issues.
