Thank you for your interest in our school logo wear and plaid uniform recycling program.

In support of our mission to cultivate sustainability in all we do, Satsuma Uniform collects used school plaid and athletic logo wear to keep them out of landfills and give new life to otherwise unwearable clothing.

Our team of sewers upcycles these items into new products (baby hats, baby mitts, kids hats, cinch sacks, zip pouches, and MORE!) that we donate to local + international children's charities as well as sell to cover our costs.

Please note: We reserve the right to donate any NON-logowear items.

We protect your brand integrity and would never donate/distribute your logowear garments. Example: if you donate athletic uniform sets that have a logowear jersey and numbered (NO logo/branding) shorts. We *may* donate the shorts if we find a use for them. 

Our artisans also create a full line of plaid school uniforms at our workshop in Seattle, WA.

Beneficiary Partners

Our program serves the following non-profit organizations with your help:  Babies in Need, WestSide BabyKidvantage NW, and Lutheran World Relief. Thank you!
