Re-purposing Your Clothes

February 07

At Rags we get excited about ALL forms of reuse when it comes to fashion. Did you know that one of the most affordable and practical ways to make your closet last longer is to update what you already have? When you purchase quality clothes made with durable fabrics, it’s easy to patch, sew, and update. Whether you’re crafty yourself, or you have a trusted tailor, it’s fantastic to go through your closet and set aside some pieces that you love, but don’t wear anymore for any number of reasons: like a ripped seam or tired soles on your shoes. At Rags we are not able to take those items — but it doesn’t mean you have to throw them away! Try to see how you can update or repurpose them, and you’ll see how good it feels to get many more years out of a tried and true look.
