  • Can I bring my waste textiles to GIRO or the market for shredding or the ReLove Local project?
    We truly appreciate your support in reducing textile waste and encourage you to continue donating to our cause. At the moment, we are only accepting textile donations dropped off at GIRO for the Restore. We are utilizing the textile that is unsellable for the ReLove Local project, while the rest is being shredded. As we are currently managing an excess of textile waste, we kindly ask for your patience until we have more room to accept additional textile donations. We will definitely keep you updated on any new developments. Once again, thank you for your dedication to making a positive impact on our environment!
  • Is it possible for me to submit an application to become a sewer for ReLove Local or offer any kind of assistance?
    Thank you for your interest in contributing to our project. Your feedback is highly appreciated, and we look forward to hearing from you. We would like to know more about your skills and how you can contribute to our project. Whether you are an experienced professional or just starting out, we welcome your input and ideas. To get in touch with us, simply send us an email with your details, and we will respond to you as soon as possible. Thank you again for your enthusiasm, and we can't wait to collaborate with you! :)
  • Are you selling your product online?
    We prioritize local shopping and take pride in our one-of-a-kind products with ever-changing designs. While we do not typically pursue this approach, we do accept small orders. Feel free to reach out to us via email or messenger, and I would be delighted to accommodate your special requests, with shipping costs covered by you.
  • Are all ReLove Local products made from clean textiles? I noticed some stains on my new purchase.
    We thoroughly wash and sanitize all the clothing and fabrics we use to create our products. Since we use discarded textiles, there may be some instances where the colour has faded or there are slight stains on the products. However, we aim to minimize waste as much as possible through upcycling and reusing. Therefore, some of our products may not look brand new, but rest assured, they are still high quality and have been made with sustainability in mind.
