Clothing has turned into a disposable commodity, directly contributing to climate change, gender inequality, social injustices, The average NYC household throws away about 120 pounds of textiles a year, amounting to approximately 13 Brooklyn Bridges of clothing, shoes, linens, and accessories in total. Additionally, 10 times as much textile waste is being thrown away before consumers see the products.
Circular fashion, keeping clothes out of landfills, helps to eliminate disposable fashion while encouraging personal style and self expression. Reclypt is educating and engaging New Yorkers on all things circular fashion, such as clothing swaps, vintage stores, and upcycle brands, like Indigo Style Vintage.
A clothing swap is a gathering of people who exchange their valued but no longer used clothing for “new” clothing they will use from someone else’s wardrobe. These swaps are an impactful and low cost way to extend the life of our clothes, divert textiles from landfills, mix up your wardrobe, and meet like-minded people.
Reclypt is more than an online marketplace for upcycled fashion, we're strengthening the community that aims to eliminate disposable fashion. We're helping New Yorkers increase the longevity of their style, on any budget, through our online store, mending clubs, clothing swaps, pop-ups, blog, social media channels, panel events, and more. Reclypt aims to educate and engage New Yorkers on circular fashion practices, brands, and changemakers.
Style lasts longer with community.

Upcycling requires a lot less water and energy than buying new and recycling. It decreases textile waste, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Overall, the practice of upcycling clothes lowers the demand for new clothing production, which is extremely wasteful and destructive for people and the planet.

What is "Deadstock"?
Basically, any leftover fabric that is not being used. This can be untouched rolls of fabric, cut up fabric, or damaged fabric.
Nonetheless, it typically sits in a warehouse before it is thrown into landfills where it can take a life time to decompose, emitting harmful greenhouses gases as it does.
Also known by a few names, with “overstock”, “surplus fabric”, and “remnant” being the most common.
