Despite our best efforts, all ASKET garments will eventually reach a point where you no longer want, need or use them anymore. They might be completely worn out, or perhaps you’ve just fallen out of love with them. What’s important is that they don’t go to waste, literally. All garments, no matter their condition, have an inherent value. That’s why we’ve created The Revival Program. Send us your old garments so we can bring them back to life.
Sign in to our portal and register any of your old ASKET garments for revival
Pack up your garments and send them back to our office in Stockholm using the carrier of your choice.
Receive your revival reward of up to 40 AUD per garment via e-mail once your parcel has been received
Your garments are given a new life through resale, remanufacture or recycling
In May 2021, we opened the doors to The Revival Program by starting the take-back of loved, worn and torn garments. We’re excited to see more and more of our customers participating in the take-back every month and thrilled to be ramping up our Revival Factory and prepping for our first secondhand sale. Head down to explore.
Here’s what we had collected by February 2021, 9 months after opening. 80% of garments are in good condition or lightly damaged, which means they can be cleaned and mended for resale. Garments with major damages are evaluated for re-manufacturing into new types of products or recycling into new fibers. Keep it coming, folks!
Having collected a good amount already, we’re thrilled to be up and running with our Revival Factory on the Swedish west coast. All “good condition” and “lightly damaged” clothing is cleaned and mended for resale in the Revival Factory. “Major Damages” are set aside for re-make (stay tuned).
With our first batch of revived ASKET essentials, we just had our first Resale event in Stockholm. Make sure to sign up for the newsletter in the footer below to get updates on upcoming events.
Here’s how the Revival Program works. We’re constantly developing and sourcing new partners to expand the program, making the take-back of your clothing more convenient and the various revival options as resource-efficient as possible. Right now, we’re focused on the revival of garments in good and lightly damaged condition, which makes up 80% of what is sent back. The next steps are the build-out of remanufacturing and recycling flows of garments that cannot be mended and sold again. We already have mills producing 100% post-consumer recycled yarns and are excited about the prospect of offering fully closed-loop garments in a not all too distant future.
If you have old ASKET items lying around we’ll gladly take them off your hands. You can send back any garment, in any condition, all we ask is that you wash it first. For each item you’ll receive a revival reward which you can use to invest in new garments - see revival reward values below.
No matter what you return we’ll make sure that it’s put to the best possible use. Some will be washed, repaired and resold. Others will be remanufactured or recycled into new garments. What we can’t salvage and keep in our own loop will be downcycled. Most importantly, nothing goes to landfill. We’ll keep you posted on how your old garments come to use.
Keeping clothes in use an extra nine months could reduce their footprint by up to 30%. Still, only 1/4 of all garments produced are collected for resale or recycling while the rest are destined for landfill or incineration. Less than 1% is recycled into new garments. We think we can do better. Help us bridge that gap and move towards a more circular fashion industry by sending your garments home.
