2.0 If we are creative enough to design clothes, we better be able to find other solutions than just throwing away?
This used to be a Kaunas dress. The dress was worn and worn until it was worn out. Now it's a basket.
A new product - without burning new resources nor causing new emissions. A new product, still made of valuable organic cotton, only added time and care.
We are happy to sell them and we also hope they may inspire you to give new life to something you've worn out yourself.
HEKNE RETURN & REUSE
Too much clothes end up in the trash. In order to help reducing the amount of textile waste, we offer a return service for HEKNE garments you don't want to keep. For each garment, we give you a gift card of 150 NOK that can be used in our webshop. All you have to do is to make sure the garment is clean before sending it to us.
In our webshop you'll find a category for second hand clothes. Here you can find garments that have been hanging in a store or rented out, have small defects or that have been returned to us as HEKNE RETURN. These garments are sold with a discount. This way we hope that we can help saving valuable garments that otherwise might end up in the trash.
We offer free reparation on all garments.
Our hope is that our garments are used so much that they are completely worn out in the end! And to make them last as much as possible, we offer free reparation on all HEKNE-garments no matter when they were bought and the reason for the damage.
If we need new parts for the reparation, as for instance a zipper, we only charge you for this. Otherwise, all you have to do is make sure the garment is clean before sending it to us.
Would you like to reparere it yourself? We have spare yarn and fabrics for most of our garments. Get in touch and we'll be happy to send you what you need!

The Mallard is a dabbling duck widely distributed across the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Actually, it is thought to be the most abundant duck on Earth.
The Mallard is 50-65 centimetres long and weighs up to 1400 grams. While the female bird has a mainly brown- speckled plumage, the male is easily recognisable with his palette of strong colours: glossy green head, yellow bill, brown chest, white collar and iridescent blue speculum feathers.
The duck is commonly found close to water, where it dives down to 1-2 metres deep searching for food.
The garments in the Mallard collection have been named after places where you may find the bird.
