All our clothes have a special Silfir label. If they ever need fixing you simply send them back to us. We offer a 24 month service guarantee for repairs, which is done with as many original parts as possible: thread, buttons, you name it. Result: Your favourite clothes look beautiful for longer, so you can keep them for longer. Just click on repair and follow the process.
If your item is worn out beyond repair you can still send it back to us for proper recycling. To reward your effort we will send you a gift voucher that you can use towards your next purchase. If in doubt, send it in for a repair first and we might tell you it can't be fixed. If you are sure you just need recycling click on recycle and follow the process.

Every year, more than six million tons of clothing are consumed in the EU alone. Globally, The textile industry is the second most polluting industry after the oil industry. This topic is no joke. It matters. Some examples that made us realise the impact every consumer can have with their purchase:
Just one pair of jeans requires up to 20.000 LITERS of water during the production process
The carbon footprint of clothes in the EU alone is around 200 million tons per year
The waste impact of clothes in the EU alone is around 11,000,000 tonnes of waste per year (including supply chain waste and final disposal)
