We Love Making Old New Again!

We are committed to keeping high-quality clothing in circulation, and we try to apply this methodology to other areas of our business as well. The more material we can reuse and recycle, the less virgin resources we need to pull from our earth. With that in mind, our creative team engineered a fleet of sleek new shipping boxes, made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper! We are getting clothes to where they are supposed to be (on you), while keeping trees where they are supposed to be (in the ground).

While we encourage you to slim down to your essentials, we’re doing the same. We’ve nixed tissue paper because it's not necessary - our boxes are designed to fit your order just right. We’re working to protect our environment, while making our packaging look sleek as hell. It’s a win-win!



Aaannd one more thing - our tape! We know you’ll probably just tear open your next order in pursuit of your new threads and not even notice. But, details matter to us and we just want to do things right. Our tape is now made from paper, rather than plastic, and it’s recyclable too.

Et voilà. A few small changes can make a big difference, especially since we ship hundreds of boxes each day. We, brands and consumers alike, need to work together and move the fashion industry in the right direction. We’re dedicated to learning and recognizing where there is room for improvement. We will never stop evolving, we promise!



When you receive an order from us, please make an effort to recycle the box or, better yet, hold onto it and reuse it. Or put your cat in it and send us a photo!

Recycle and stay cool.



We Are Material World


Here’s the truth. The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world, right behind big oil. Through our Trade-In service, we have found a meaningful way to shift the industry in a healthier and more sustainable direction.
