Papu Pre-loved: A New Life To Your Pre-loved Papu Clothes


We manufacture our clothes responsibly and carefully so that they get the longest and best life possible even after their first user.

You can now either recycle your own pre-loved Papu’s easily and quickly through us or buy second hand from our own, curated and wonderful Papu Pre-loved collection.


Recycle with us and turn your pre-loved Papu’s to vouchers

We have made recycling as easy as possible for you:

Send your pre-loved Papu items back to us and we will find a new home for them! In return, you will receive a gift card to our online store with which you can buy either new or pre-lowed Papu items.

We will refund you 70% or 50% of the estimated second hand price for each approved garment. You will receive the gift card almost immediately and you don’t need to wait for the clothes to be sold. Easy, quick and responsible.

Our recycling partner is Ninyes, which is the first and only marketplace for used, responsibly manufactured clothing in Northern Europe. At Ninyes you will also find even more pre-loved Papu’s.

For each item that is eligible for resale, we will refund you 70% (for items with a value more than 70€) or 50% (for items with a value less than 70€) of the estimated sales price.

You will receive the voucher approximately two weeks after you have shipped your clothes to us. The voucher is valid three (3) months from the date of issue.

More information, exact instructions and terms of use can be found from our recycling partner Ninyes’ website.  

What can I recycle?

Used Papu women’s and children's clothing and accessories (headwear and scarves). Clothing should be in good condition, intact and clean and have an intact brand label. The assumed selling price for each garment must be at least € 10.

Dirty, stained, broken, clearly faded or discolored clothes. Clothes with animal hair or strong fragrance. Samples, factory seconds or clothes with cut brand labels. We won’t accept socks and hair accessories.


Why recycling?

In order to have all Papu clothes to be used as long as possible and to make recycling them as easy, as safe and as beneficial as possible for you. The greater the use of a garment, the lower its overall impact on nature. By recycling, we can greatly reduce the carbon footprint of our clothes.

Thanks for caring and recycling!
