The Future Past was born out of a love of vintage and second hand clothing. We collect special pieces based on fabric, hand feel, construction, and it’s potential to be revived. We love the feeling of perfectly worn-in cloth that feels like a second skin. We prefer buying second hand or vintage over something new. We use natural (plant and botanical) dyes on hand selected garments to give them a colorful second life. We mend, patch, embroider, and restore pieces to extend their life and accentuate their beauty. We offer alterations on most pieces because we all deserve to feel good and look amazing in our clothes. Besides, if it doesn’t fit-you won’t wear it. We want you to wear and LOVE each one-of-a-kind piece that you purchase from us. If you love and wear it so much that it needs repair then bring it back for mending.
There is a lot of waste in the world, we want to do our part in using thoughtful design and existing resources to keep what has already been made in circulation and out of landfills.
