About SWOP

The abbreviation SWOP stands for ‘Save World’s Original Properties’. In other words: we need to handle our planet’s resources properly and responsibly. And now, in order to apply that principle within the fashion industry, we have developed the SWOP-box. SWOP is a point-of-sale concept that helps retailers to give textiles a second chance.
