Certifying Home Goods

October 09, 2020

The third step in the renewal process is certification.  It comes in the middle of the process to ensure that no product moves on without this vital inspection.  We will not place a Renewal Workshop label –Step 4 Co-Branding—on any product unless it has been cleaned and repaired.

Another layer of inspection is added when certifying home goods.  When making repairs to apparel products, the focus is on the visible side; the inside of the garment does not require that same standard as the outside.  Working on products like towels or sheets is a little trickier because there is essentially no inside.  So our team of Sew Techs must apply their skills and ingenuity to make both sides of the repair as invisible as possible.  And in turn, our quality assurance team must examine all sides of every home good with a particular eye for how it will appear from any angle in your home.  This team is also inspecting each item to be sure there is no pilling, fading, fabric fatigue or overall signs of exterior wear.  Once products are reviewed and approved, they are officially certified as Renewed.

The Renewed certification gives you, the consumer, the confidence that each duvet cover, towel or pillow sham you buy will be like-new.
