"Simply the best platform to sell and buy like-new, affordable clothing."

- your friends

 

VOWS is started by two sisters who realised that most of the clothes hanging in their closets are barely worn and are only kept to avoid the feeling of guilt that comes with impulse-buying. One day they think, 'enough is enough!'. It's time to face the result of their fashion choices, so they group a few friends to swap, sell and buy each other's clothing. Soon enough, they started selling in parks and events. 
 
Now, VOWS becomes the only trusted brand to sell and buy used clothing in Malaysia. With VOWS, not only you get cash rewards for recycling your style, you'll receive up to 90% discount on major brands - everyday!

.. "She said they were inspired by the booming food truck businesses in the Klang Valley and thought a mobile store would give "thrifters" greater flexibility as the items would be brought to them "instead of them trying to find us".

Syakirin stressed that paying less for something does not necessarily mean you have to compromise on quality.

.. "We also wanted to attach a social meaning to the business, therefore we decided to work with charities and NGOs. We are always willing to provide them with items that they need,” Athirah added.

Athirah also divulged that while educating the public is a daily struggle, it’s not impossible as they have converted some people into thrifting. “I think most people just don’t come across many good second-hand clothes but once they do, they are able to accept it."
