Something new, something revolutionary.

Please note: a new window will open and you will enter a separate webshop with a new shopping cart.

In 2020 we launched our pre-loved program in which 
customers can bring studio .ruig garments back to the store.

These pre-loved pieces are photographed, minor repairs may be done 
and are sold through our online channels. 
When the garment is sold the customer is rewarded with a credit 
in their account to invest in a new studio .ruig garment.

With this circular system we aim to let pre-loved garments 
from early adapters flow to new wearers in an easy approachable way.
In this manner new wearers are able to experience the quality 
and comfort of studio .ruig and feel more confidence when 
investing in their garderobe in the future.

Together with our customer we strive to make slow fashion 
known and accessible to a wider audience.

What are preloved pieces?
Pre-loved pieces are pieces of clothing that you once bought at Studio .ruig, but no longer wear. studio. ruig serves as a collection or gathering place for all those pieces to sell them to a new owner. They are photographed and put on the website. If something minor is broken, the garment is repaired. This is how we contribute to slow fashion and make our clothes more accessible to a wider audience. By bringing in old garments, you also benefit yourself. In exchange for bringing in a garment you no longer wear, you get credit to invest in new pieces in the shop. A true win-win.

Why pre-loved pieces?
Contribute to a slow fashion system.
Our clothes are seasonless, made in Europe and designed here in the studio and brand store. They are made of high-quality materials with timeless designs. That is why you can wear the pieces for 5 to 10 years. It would be a shame to throw them out after just a few years. With the pre-loved pieces, you get the most out of the garments and you get a credit in your account for bringing something in, so you can invest in a new piece. You give the garments a second life and we avoid buying new ones every season.

Accessible for everyone
Sustainable, high-quality clothing is an investment, but will eventually pay itself back. By selling your pieces second-hand, we can pass them on to new users in an accessible way. This way, new users can get to know the comfort and quality of our pieces and have more confidence to invest in their wardrobe in the future.

Don't leave them hanging
Instead of leaving your clothes hanging in your closet, it is better to sell them through the pre-loved pieces system. There are advantages for you to this as well. You make use of the network of studio .ruig so that the garment is probably sold much faster than as selling it yourself. We have the know-how about the materials and designs to make a fitting description. In short, you have little work and save you time, because we do it for you. As a fashion label, we like to take this responsibility, because it shows we stand behind our designs.
