The Field Clothing Swap!

Join The Field clothing exchange on Saturday, September 25, during the ‘Leiden Day Against Fast Fashion’! 👗


Because together we already have an insane amount of clothes! On average, we buy about 46 new pieces of clothing per person per year in the Netherlands. Of these, we throw away no less than 40 pieces. This is a shame and so it is time for a change!

Who can take part?

The clothing swap is for both men and women.                                                         

How does it work?

Sign up before September 23 (be quick because we have a limited number of places)

After confirmation you bring a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 7 good pieces of clothing. Accessories such as jewelry, bags and shoes may be brought without limit!

All clothes that remain after the exchange can be taken home or put in the bag of the Leiden clothing chain.
