20%: Fair condition; may be upcycled; or missing features.
30%: Good condition; may be repaired and/or upcycled
40%: Excellent used condition needing little or no refurbishment; not missing features

We pay for shipping both ways within the United States (lower 48). Outside the US Lower 48, you are responsible for returning the item to us. We will either repair or exchange warranty items.

Everything, even awesome clothing, has a life cycle.

Together we can break the chain of fast fashion--and create a new cycle: we make a garment; you buy it; you love it; and someday you return it to be repaired or transformed it into something else.

And, from there, a NEW cycle continues. So, if you are ever finished with a Color of Heat garment, please don't throw it away! We will actually pay you to send it back to us!

Wear your Color of Heat garment until it can't be worn anymore--then return it to us to be repaired or recycled in exchange for COH cash:
