High street fashion ‘mystery boxes’ sold to help factory workers

clothes factory

Fashion app start-up Mallzee has launched a mystery clothing box service, Lost Stock, selling well-known fashion brands to help tackle the issue of cancelled stock and its impact on Bangladeshi workers.

Each box contains spring/summer 2020 items that were rumoured to be destined for high street stores including Topshop and Gap, sold at half their retail price and delivered straight from the suppliers.

Lost Stock boxes cost £35 for over £70 worth of clothing and take 4-6 weeks to arrive. Customers can specify their size and tastes in terms of fit, colour and patterns so the box is more tailored to their style.

Edinburgh-based Mallzee, in partnership with the Sajida Foundation, will donate the profit from each box towards feeding a garment worker and their family for one week.
