US men’s denim brand Taylor Stitch recently launched the Restitch clothing recycling program, through which shoppers can return old clothes to the company for credit, while the piece of apparel gets reconstructed into a new, one-of-a-kind garment sold for a fraction of the original price. The recreated clothes are sold as the retailer’s Vintage Collection.

Taylor Stitch was launched in San Francisco in 2008.

The frictionless return process lets shoppers download a shipping label online or visit a store to drop off their items. The retailer’s Vintage Collection will be launched with 42 unique pieces created from some of the nearly 1,500 pieces of outerwear, denim, shirting, knits, footwear and accessories donated by customers.

The program was created through a partnership with Yerdle, an end-to-end technology and logistics resale platform, according to the company.

“Restitch is our response to the clothing industry’s overproduction issue. Eighty-five per cent of all apparel ends up in landfills, including what is donated, and 100 per cent has the ability to be recycled or upcycled,” said Michael Maher, chief executive officer and co-founder of Taylor Stitch in a statement.

Restitch is the second clothing creation program embraced by Taylor Stitch. The retailer also runs the Workshop, where new garments are announced and interested shoppers are given four weeks to place an order. (DS)
