eBay to expand second-hand clothing range

eBay is partnering with clothing repair and resale company Reskinned to expand its second-hand clothing range.

The move is part of the online marketplace’s bid to address growing fashion waste.

eBay said that items from Reskinned are generally priced at 40 per cent lower than High Street prices.

Reskinned is currently working with over 30 brands, including Finisterre, Sweaty Betty, River Island, and Joules.

eBay will also connect the business with its more than 20 million shoppers through a ‘brand approved’ shopfront.

“Across the fashion industry we know there is a greater need to build a sustainable future,” said Jemma Tadd, head of fashion, at eBay UK.

“Since 1995, eBay has extended the life cycle of products, whether through consumer to consumer reselling or now the Imperfects hub, so it’s fantastic to partner with Reskinned, who are at the forefront of empowering the circular fashion economy.”

Tadd added: “Pairing eBay’s reach to conscious customers, with Reskinned’s expertise in garment repair, resale and recycling will help extend the lifecycle of products, reduce waste and showcase the variety of routes into a kinder way to shop for the shopper's wallet and the planet.”

The partnership follows the launch of eBay’s ‘Imperfects’ Hub earlier this year, which gives consumers access to clothes, shoes and accessories which are considered new with defects but can’t be sold at full price, and Brand Outlet, which lets shoppers buy end of season stock at up to 70 per cent off.
