Rhetorical Factory West Asheville Recycled ClothingAcquiring, re-inventing and selling sincerely one-of-a-kind recycled clothing is a considerable undertaking, but one we have taken on gladly as we create a new paradigm for business and society. We are committed to our mission to recycle clothes, inspire questioning and be 100% good, and we invite others who are inspired by this mission to join us. After all, when it comes to sustainable alternatives to our current system, we are all in this together!

As we pursue the lofty goals of the recycled clothing movement, we can always use help.

How You Can Support Us
In addition to buying our clothing, you can support Rhetorical Factory by donating clothes and/or by volunteering as a model, photographer, stylist, DJ or production assistant.

Donate Clothes
Stop by our store at 44 Haywood Rd #102 in Asheville, NC on Tuesdays between 11 am and 7 pm to drop off on any and all clothing donations in the studio. On this day also invite you to hang out and enjoy some coffee or tea and cookies!

Models
We use volunteers in a number of capacities, the primary way is as models. Every piece of clothing we sell is one of a kind and we have to take a picture of every single item before it can be listed online. This creates the need for a regular team of modles. We take great pride in our models and the fact that they are real people who add authenticy and personality to the store. Please click here to fill out our model information form.

Photographers and Stylists
We hold regular photo shoots, and welcome volunteer photographers and stylists to help us get the best images for our website. Contact us if this opportunity appeals to you.

Production Assistant
Interested in the hands on work? You can assist us with the washing and preparation of our recycled clothes. Be a part of the process of turning would be waste into a unique resource! Send us a message if you’d like to find out more about volunteering in production.

DJs
On Thursdays, we have DJs playing vinyl in the store all day, and DJs are also invited to participate in a weekly photo shoot for the website listings. We’ll begin in the afternoon and evolve into a full on dance party every week. Click here to let us know if you are interested in being a DJ.
