“How does Material World’s Trade-In service compare to other consignment options?” is a question that we get a lot. And we LOVE answering it! The simple answer is that we offer upfront payments, free returns, and a transparent process. No wait, no risk, no worries. If you’re not convinced, let’s go through this step by step.
Rie is not a zen master, uber spiritual, or a black belt in meditation. She’s a New Yorker, who co-founded Material World, oh, and she’s an expecting mother. She has A LOT on her plate, but she eventually made the time for a 10-day meditation retreat. In the end, it was life-changing and she doesn’t know why she waited so long.
Good news! We’ve added 24 stellar brands to our list of Accepted Brands. This was no spur-of-the-moment decision. We take our time to really consider which brands are turning out clothing that is fashionable, functional, and friendly to our environment. We want our denim to be just like our relationships...high-quality and long-lasting.

Spring is the quintessential time to clear out the old and make way for the new. Decluttering your closet is an easy way to refresh your style, clear your headspace, and find that MIA sweater. Plus, you have the added bonus of making someone happy by passing on your Chloé and Marc Jacobs castaways.
Material World was founded by our fearless leaders, Rie and Jie, to empower women to reinvent themselves and their worlds. We consider apparel to be the gear you need to get to where you want to go, whether you’re running after kids, running a meeting, or running for office. On International Women’s Day (psst it’s today!) it is especially important to celebrate the strong, proactive, and diverse women in our lives that work hard to make things, simply put, better. Today is a reminder to recognize where gender inequalities still exist, and to acknowledge those who are focused on closing these gaps. We truly believe that women supporting women drives real momentum. Though our list could go on forever, here are a few female change-makers. Each, in her very own unique style, is a modern day leader.
“Fashion should be fun and send a message.” This is the motto on which Italian luxury house Moschino was founded. By pioneering designs that blend rebellion and irreverence and even criticizing his own industry at times, Moschino pushed the limits on fashion from the beginning.
