Send Us Your T-Shirts!

(aka an excellent excuse to clean your closet) 

Have you seen our new Pocket Mini Skirts*? If so, you may have noticed that they’re made out of upcycled t-shirts! If you’ve been wanting one of these versatile skirts but haven’t seen one yet that speaks to you, we wanted to let you know about our new Upcycled T-Shirt program.

Send us your old t-shirt and we will convert it into a custom Pocket Mini Skirt for $65. If you send us 12 additional t-shirts, we’ll make your skirt for free! There’s no limit to how many t-shirts you can donate. If we can’t use any of the shirts you send, we will re-donate them to a WA non-profit charity. Of the shirts we use, any leftover fabric will be turned into ruffles, patches, and other nifty stuff, so your beloved t-shirts will live on (practically) forever!

The fine print

  1. We can only accept stretch knit t-shirts, any color. We cannot accept woven shirts or garments of any other kind. 
  2. Shirts must be clean, in fair to excellent condition, without any odors or stains (but don’t worry about pit stains).
  3. Any style graphic is welcome, even abstract patterns like stripes, polka dots, etc. 
  4. Designer reserves artistic license with pocket design placement.

We look forward to giving your beloved t-shirts a new life.
