We’re proud to introduce Re-Worn, our take-back program designed to extend the life of Assembly Label clothing and support a circular economy.
You can return pre-owned Assembly Label clothing to our stores. Customers in Australia can also contribute through our website. To thank you for your contribution, for a limited time you’ll receive a one-off gift of 10% off your next purchase. Subject to terms and conditions.
After careful inspection, laundering, and if required, repair, these items will become part of the Re-Worn collection, available to shop in our Fitzroy store and online.
Any items deemed beyond repair will be recycled through our recycling partner, SCR Group.
In 10 years of business, we have never sent products to landfill.
Since launching our repair service, we have laundered and repaired 1360 items and collected 243kg of unrepairable garments, which we then sent to our textile recycling partner SCR Group.
We are proud to offer a repair service from our retail stores. Should one of your Assembly Label garments lose a button, have a loose thread or a pulled seam, we will gladly have this professionally mended, free of charge.
Naturally, if a customer returns a faulty garment that can’t be repaired, we will provide a refund, store credit or exchange.
For advice on how to best care for and extend the life of your Assembly Label clothing, please read through our Fabric Care Guides.
If a product cannot be repaired or passed on, we also offer a recycling service.
Our recycling partner SCR Group collects and sorts all items, offering any that are suitable to charity. What can’t be reused in Australia goes to the Australian-owned partner facility in Malaysia for sorting. The items are then either sent to communities where they are needed most, recycled into rags or converted into biofuels.
