Vinokilo Circle


NOW! Send your pre-loved items to us!

What is Vinokilo Circle?

Vinokilo Circle is our 100% community-based initiative to reduce fashion waste.

With this new project, you can now send your pre-loved items to us for up-cycling and recycling, and receive discount vouchers in return!


How does it work?

  1. Declutter your closet and pick out the awesome pieces you want to send!
  2. Purchase a label from us.
  3. We’ll email you a shipping label that you can print out and use for the package.
  4. Send us your clothes!
  5. Once we receive them, we’ll send you a discount matching the weight of the items in 14 days.
  6. Use your exclusive discount to refresh your wardrobe with Vinokilo’s vintage styles!
  7. Your items will be sorted by hand at our warehouse in Bodenheim. Most will be used for our events and our online store. The rest will be up-cycled or sent to local fashion designers to support their businesses.

What do you get in return?

As a thank you from us for disrupting the cycle of fast fashion, you’ll receive a discount voucher based on the weight of your items as below:

  • 10% off for 1kg
  • 15% off for 2kg
  • 25% off for 3kg
  • 30% off for 4kg


Why are we starting this?

Although nearly half of the average person’s wardrobe is unworn, most people often feel like they have nothing to wear. When these clothes are removed, there’s the problem of how to safely dispose of them and where to find affordable, sustainable replacements.

On the other hand, clothing production currently contributes more to climate change than all international aviation and shipping combined [1]. More than 100 billion clothes are produced each year with this figure expected to increase. But only 1% of these clothes are recycled. [2]

We want to join forces with you to solve this problem.

By upcycling your pre-loved items, we’ll rescue tonnes of clothes from landfills and ensure they get a second life. Sending you an exclusive Vinokilo discount will also provide you with fun vintage-wear that you can wear for years.

It’s just one part of our plan to make a global impact on the fashion industry by minimising textile waste.


  • What can I send?
    All  items that are in good & wearable condition, that another vintage lover would be thrilled to receive! If you would feel happy giving it to a friend, we’d be happy to accept. We accept clothes, shoes, bags and other accessories. We can’t accept underwear and socks at this time.
