08/2017 Co-branding with the Salvation Army and its up-cycled clothing line Redeem.
Fashionistas beware!! We are making Eco-friendly design looking glamorous using second time around articles of clothing. Sensibly with the amount of garment that is being discarded yearly, it makes a lot of sense. Did you know that in the US. 70 lbs per person, per year, is being thrown or given away. The landfill is in need of Tenactin or us. (bitter sweet ah, ah.)
