What does ‘upcycled’ mean?
upcycling is the reuse of an object or material, where the end result is a product of higher quality an/or value than its original form. Mewe upcycles clothing and material which are considered 'unusable' on their own, into stellar, one-of-a-kind garments. (yes, we're a little biased)
Where do you get get the clothes, before they are redesigned?
our garments are sourced from a variety of locations. storage warehouses, thrift shops, clothing auctions, private donations, ect. we aim to source garments which would not be purchased 'as is'. Meaning, garments which are damaged or otherwise undesirable, and are therefore likely to end up in a landfill or shipped to underdeveloped countries.
How do I know what size to order?
Most of our garments run true to size. however, due to the nature of upcycling, consistency from garment to garment cannot be guaranteed. if you would like specific measurements for an item, email us at INFO@meweclothingbrand.com and we'll happily send them to you.
