One man's trash, is another man's treasure.
Founded in late 2018 out of Australia, Unwanted FC is inspired by giving unwanted football jerseys a second life. We enjoy celebrating kits of the past, especially during a time when the gaps between football, fashion and sustainability closes in.
Obsessed with the nostalgia that vintage football garments bring, we are also specialists in the practice of upcycling - transforming once beloved garments at the end of their lifecycle into new functional designs such as tote bags, side bags, face masks and more.
The opportunities for a jersey to live on are endless.
We promote collections of our own, and offer our custom upcycling service to football fans, brands, clubs & organisations.
Our long term vision is to have our upcycling ideology implemented on a much larger scale through collaborating with likeminded brands. Ultimately this would mean:
- More consumers educated on the subject,
- Challenging traditional industry practices,
- Less waste ending up in landfill.
Alongside many others, we believe that the future is circular.
From the two brothers and founding partners, welcome to Unwanted FC.
