For people who love fashion and love the planet

Sisters Nicole and Frankie decided to do something positive about the state of the world and fight back against the fast fashion industry by co-founding Bandi.

A few years ago, Frankie was travelling around Morocco when Nicole came out to soak up some sunshine. Just like at home, it wasn’t long before the two sisters emptied out their wardrobes and were busy swapping clothing and trying on new things. Frankie said, “Wouldn’t it be cool if everyone had a sister or a friend to swap with?”

What makes Bandi different is its focus on sustainability and community. Instead of high-end rentals for special occasions like weddings and one-off transactions, Bandi is about building relationships and allowing users to permanently swap – not just loan – the everyday items they never wear for new-to-them clothing from someone else’s wardrobe.

01

Sustainable

Bandi is a fully circular alternative to fast fashion. All you have to do is pay the postage, say thank you, then bask in your own environmentally- friendly glow knowing that you didn’t send another sweater to landfill.

02

Affordable

There’s no subscription (and swaps are free), so you don’t need a clothing budget to look the business. As long as you have clothes to swap, you’ll never run out – because when one item leaves you, another one arrives.

03

Community

We’re not just about clothes. Bandi is a place where people want to hang out. From finding your “fashion twin” who shares the same clothing and fit challenges to belonging to a community that shares your values – we’re bringing together an eco-aware generation.
