We salvage quality textiles
There are already enough clothes on the planet for all of us to keep dressing until 2050, but every second, while you are reading this, a trash truck full of textiles is being wasted.

We are finishing up all our natural resources, meaning the average occidental woman would need the resources of three Earths to keep her lifestyle and the way of dressing she has if we would all do the same. Are we mad?
"We like to call it clothing reincarnation"
At Deleitewear we do not want to exploit our finite natural resources when there is already plenty of textile material for use. We challenge the system and creatively source our materials without consuming any land to grow new crops, any water and any toxic chemicals to create new fibers.
We salvage pre-loved quality garments that are still in great condition although, due to tiny holes or imperfections, they cannot be sold in the second hand or vintage market. We offer these textiles the opportunity to keep living. It is a clothing reincarnation. Extending the life of a garment for only 9 more months reduces its carbon, water and waste footprint in 20 - 30%. We offer you the opportunity to reduce your ecological footprint.
