lifespan

 

in the usa alone, we throw out nearly 14 million tons of textiles each year. the most important thing we can to to reduce this textile waste is prolong the lifespan of our garments. a few of our practice:

  • SWAP - fans of ace&jig swap styles that they no longer wear with each other, giving the pieces a new life! 
  • REPAIr - we are committed to helping extend the life of our clothing by repairing.  we offer complementary seamstress service at all of our community events to make repairs to well-loved ace&jig pieces.
  • RESell - our online community participates in lively reselling of styles they no longer use, giving these styles a new and longer lifespan.
  • UPCYCLe - many members of our community upcycle their ace&jig pieces into one-of-a-kind creations. we love that they share our commitment to finding a purpose for every last scrap.
