Lilja Preloved

We're always up for a challenge! That's why, for the second year in a row, we've teamed up with Relove to find a solution for one of our long-term sustainability goals: extending the lifecycle of every Lilja the Label item. We design our products to last, both use and the test of time. However as our bodies fluctuate, sometimes we find that the pieces we purchase don't fit us perfectly, or we use them less than we originally thought. In these situations, it's a good option to resell the item so it becomes meaningful to another user. But because swimwear can be considered a hygiene product, reselling it can be a tricky task.

That's why we wanted to establish Lilja Preloved together with our partner, Relove. Relove is a Finnish 2nd-hand pioneer and a Helsinki-based 2nd-hand store. We take in your worn Lilja pieces and give them a new chance through Relove. The selection includes not only items returned by our community but also some of our production samples, prototypes, items worn during photoshoots, and some used favorite pieces from our staff.

From May to July, you'll find Lilja Preloved at Relove. Won't be in Helsinki this summer? Don't worry, we plan to offer a selection of used items for our international swim enthusiasts online later this season. Stay tuned!
