The alternew Mission

Fashion needs to change, and we’re here to change it. With a few simple pins, a stitch here and there, we can deliver an improved fit and extend the life of the clothes you already own. Making alterations more accessible can reduce the 80 pounds of clothing the average American throws away each year, and we’re here to make that process just as fun as shopping for some new duds. We are dedicated to centering sustainability, inclusivity, body positivity, and clothing customization at every step of the way.
