We know that the apparel industry is tough on our planet. As for kids’ apparel, well, think about it like this: Little bodies work hard to grow bigger. With every growth spurt, pants get shorter, dresses become tighter, and t-shirts turn into crop tops. Time to size up.
Then there’s the wear-and-tear factor. All the things we encourage kids to partake in daily—play, explore, experiment—make those same pants, dresses, and tees dirtier, stickier, and holy-er. Time to replace.
But back to the apparel industry. Massive production minimums mean that brands both big-name and boutique have to place massive orders with manufacturers. Most of the time, the clothes you see on store shelves (both virtual and IRL) won’t sell all the way through at the end of a season. Excess inventory, no matter how adorable or seasonless—remember, kids clothes won’t fall victim to passing trends like ours might—gets replaced with new styles. This results in stacks and racks of fantastic, well-known and indy-brand pieces just sitting there in warehouses or worse. Time to do something about it.
At Dopple, we want to do just that, in a meaningful way that slows down, and ultimately extends, the lifespan of children’s clothes. And because we’re overachievers, we also want to give the grownups buying the clothes a break on their credit card bills—and gift them some time back, too.
Intercepting perfectly cute, brand-new overstock and past-season pieces on their way to the aforementioned warehouses and landfills is how we get it done.
We bring the clothes over to our fulfillment center, where we bundle things from your favorite labels into hand-styled Drops. (Yes, we have real-life stylists on staff to make sure every Drop fits your little one’s taste to a T.)
Simply put, curating pieces from multiple brands into Drops allows us to make good on three Dopple promises:
Save time through our one-stop-shop for the coolest childrens clothes and delivering them as often as they like right to their doors, in 100% recyclable mailers, no less.
Save money through our partnerships with brands big and small, meaning we can take significant chunks of $$$ off the retail price: at least 30% off and an extra 25% off if they keep the entire Drop.
And that’s not all
Now you can do your part, too...
By teaming up with Treet, we are thrilled to invite you to love your Drop, then pass it on. In other words, to extend your children's clothes’ journey beyond just your child. Our resale marketplace, ReDopple, lets you pass pre-loved pieces on to the next little one—and make some cash for the next Drop while you’re at it.Visit Redopple
