A Guide to the best vintage and thrift shopping in India

Vintage and thrift shopping is something which has certainly made a place in people’s hearts. Thrift is synonymous with balanced and slow fashion.

With the approach of sustainability and conscious lifestyle, vintage and thrift shopping are a huge shift as care of Mother Earth. Also, it’s a great way to access luxe and high price sustainable clothing without splurging on. A lot of us who don’t believe in buying trendy or fast fashion pieces can also indulge ourselves in one or two pieces of them from vintage and thrift shopping.

Let’s say that it’s all about the maximum wear of a clothing piece which gets valued by how many times it has been worn. In the age of mass production and dumping, we gotta be more responsible for what we purchase and how we use our clothes. Even in terms of social justice, if we want to discourage huge fast fashion stores who aren’t paying fair wages to their workers, vintage and thrift shopping is the answer.
