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.
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.
Reborn welcomes all types of collaborations! Whether the end product is for retail sales or internal use only, we work closely with each brand to find the right upcycling solutions.
When we learned about the volumes of surplus branded apparel universities create, we extended our vision of upcycling clothing. We secured collegiate licensing and began making new goods from material otherwise destined for the landfill. Today, Reborn U works with 70+ schools diverting 1,000s of items from filling our landfills.

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.
