Every time you sell an item of preloved clothing, it means that somebody out there isn’t buying new - you’re actively keeping circular fashion moving, and that’s a big deal for the planet.
We want to help you sell clothing quickly and easily, so we’ve put together this simple guide. Use it to:
- Learn about the types of textiles we can and can’t accept, and why
- Choose the correct condition of your item according to specific criteria
- Understand precisely what our Quality Control team is looking for when inspecting an item
- Find out more about stains, scratches, dyes and more.

What do we look for?
When our Quality Control team is assessing textiles, there are some key areas and features they look out for.
- Color marks/stains - Are there stains and if so, how many, how large, and how noticeable?
- Pulls - Are there pulls? How many?
- Snag/Hole- Are there snags or holes and if so, how many and how large?
- Pilling- Is there pilling on the fabric? Where and how badly?
We have very specific criteria that help us define the condition of the item. For exact details of each of the issues we look for, you can find more details below.
A word on linings
Whether it’s a jacket, shirt or skirt, the condition of the interior of the item should match the exterior. For linings, we carefully assess the item for holes, fraying, odor, stains and torn seams.
