Reclypt's Mending Club caters to a wide range of skill sets. We enable our mender’s to take on simple fixes like replacing a button, or more technical concepts like embroidering or darning. Our approach to mending helps facilitate skill development while working with a community to solve problems. Not only do we have experienced instructors on staff, but our community is experienced in a variety of skills and always willing to help others.
The average NYC household throws away about 120 pounds of textiles a year. Which amounts to approximately 200,000 tons of clothing, shoes, linens, and accessories in total (& 10 times as much textile waste is being thrown away before consumers see the products). Learning to mend your clothes helps keep textiles out of landfills, which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy usage, all while promoting personal style and self expression.
Mending is also a beautiful, meditative way to extend the life of your clothing and it makes a powerful statement about your values. At Reclypt, we know the joy of engineering your own repair.
The Reclypt approach to mending is unique in practicing radical self expression while amongst a community of like minded people who want to agitate the status quo of churn and burn fashion. Our belief is that if people commit more strongly and informed to the clothing they invest in, people will invest more confidently. Therein creating less waste. Snag that holey, needs-a-hem thrift shop find and bring it over. We’ll show you how to enjoy it for a long time.
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.
