"Flux Bene uses waste-free designs and upcycled clothing and fabric to create one-of-a-kind, gender-neutral garments right here in Pittsburgh for kind and creative individuals everywhere.”
In 2017, textile artist and erstwhile sociologist Rebekah Joy launched Flux Bene, a line of everyday garments completely made from recycled clothing and upcycled fabric from the clothing industry. Flux Bene’s designs reimagine existing garments and incorporate signature features — generous pockets, indigo flourishes, appliqué shapes, and fabrics colored with botanical dyes, among others — to create unique clothing options for everyday, long-term wear. The line is 100%conceived and fabricated from Flux Bene’s sun-filled, zero-waste Point Breeze studio. With whimsical names like the Studio Vest, the Flughafen Top, and the Moon Frock, each piece is one-of-a-kind, sized inclusively for various people, and ready-to-wear for all.
