Reborn Clothing Co. started with a simple idea: Give consumers an upcycling option for their closet. After a few months, we realized this idea didn’t apply to just consumers, but organizations of all sizes.

We first increased our impact by licensing with NC State University. After transforming hundreds of surplus branded apparel and promotional items into higher-value products, we’ve expanded to work with other schools and companies.

Together, Reborn and our partners are keeping textile waste out of the landfill by designing and manufacturing accessories, totes, apparel, linens, and even dog beds.

If you need a sustainable and unique partnership for your organization’s surplus textiles, Reborn is the right partner for you. Contact us today to get started.

Our Partners


We’ve taken what we’ve learned from colleges and universities and are making new partnerships with forward-thinking companies. We’re working with organizations interested in taking what has no worth and creating value from it. We’re doing it again and again, for larger brands and larger quantities, all while still maintaining our high-quality standards.

Davis Furniture Logo

We began our partnership with the Davis design team on their 75th anniversary by developing a unique tote from their surplus felt. From there, we branched out into durable, sustainable laptop sleeves.

League Logo

Reborn Clothing Co. teamed up with League to create new, upcycled masks to help you and the planet. Every mask is reusable, washable and helps divert excess fabric from entering landfills.

Sunbrella Logo

Reborn upcycles thousands of pounds of surplus marine-grade Sunbrella fabric to create ultra-durable (but still ultra-chic) beach bags, totes and zipper pouches. The best part? Each item in this collection is totally unique.


When we discovered that universities create enormous amounts of surplus branded apparel, we saw an opportunity to extend our vision of upcycling clothing. With collegiate licensing secured, we’re creating brand new goods from material otherwise destined for the landfill.

Organizational Sustainability

We help companies reduce their environmental footprint. While we are open to companies of all shapes and sizes, we’re focused on textile brands. Every fashion brand contributes to the industry’s rank as second highest polluter on the planet. Nearly every step of a textile product creates waste. In design, one or two yards of sample fabric are ordered before committing to a full run of thousands of yards. Waste is also generated during manufacturing and, of course, at the end of the product’s life, through customer returns, deadstock inventory, or worn garments. 

We’ve entered into exciting partnerships where we find innovative methods to reuse textile waste. With every partner, we discover what product best fits the brand’s recurring deadstock. The end result?  Exceptional products that solve a problem. Our products are functional, beautiful, and ready to begin their second life.
