When we swap offline, it's always with a unique Swap Society twist. We use our points system at clothing swap events too, so you get equal value for what you bring in. Plus, any leftover points can be used on our site later.
WHAT WE ACCEPT**
Women's clothes, handbags, shoes and fashion jewelry (a.k.a. costume jewelry—no fine jewelry.)
WHAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT
For health and safety reasons we do not accept Women's swimwear, panties or hosiery.
*If you want to swap more than 5 items, you are welcome to drop them off to Swap Society at the event for use on swapsociety.co later.
**Our events run a little differently than our regular online service. You can swap shoes and handbags at our events. There's no per-item fee, and you can spend your points freely without any point range limits. Please note that items brought to our swap events are not returnable.
ABOUT FASHION REVOLUTION
Fashion Revolution Week 2019 marks the 6th year of Fashion Revolution, the world’s largest fashion activism movement founded to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased. The campaign will run from April 22-28 in more than 100 countries, and will challenge more people than ever before to demand systemic reform of the fashion industry.
JOIN THE FASHION REVOLUTION
We love fashion. But we don’t want our clothes to exploit people or destroy our planet. We demand radical, revolutionary change. We believe that positive change can happen if we all think differently about fashion and demand better. We want a cleaner, safer, fairer, more transparent and more accountable fashion and textiles industry. We want fashion to become a force for good. We believe in an industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. Join the movement, ask brands #whomademyclothes?
