New Delhi: Online thrift stores in India go beyond simply selling cheap clothes and customers frequently seek ethical sourcing, size inclusivity, and sustainability. A thrift store has made it possible to upcycle clothing and sell it at a lower price than retail.

While thrifting has been popular in other countries for a long time, it has only recently gained popularity in India. And it has taken a pandemic to get serious takers for online thrift stores.

Buying second-hand clothes, which was once frowned upon, has undergone a makeover as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. With the growing popularity of sustainable and ethically sourced products in India, Gen Z is increasingly gravitating toward what is now known as pre-loved clothing.

Thrift stores also help small and local business owners establish their clothing lines. Similarly, it is a cost-effective option for customers to dress in a low-cost fashion. Thrift stores are valuable to environmentalists and scientists because they are anti-fast fashion and environmentally sustainable.

Now, easily access thrift stores on Instagram at a greatly reduced price:

Threadripper: Threadripper is promoting the upcycling, pre-loved, and homemade fashion movements. Their store has an eye-catching collection of casual wear. They also enjoy tying and dying thrift store clothing for their customers.
