Pre-Loved! A Huge New Design Challenge!!

by Threadless / None /

What does pre-loved mean to you? Is it the left over pizza from last night’s dinner that is now this morning’s breakfast? The baby blanket from your childhood that you’ve passed down to your nephew? Perhaps a vintage article of clothing?

Threadless Loves Pre-Loved

Your challenge for this Loves is to show us what “pre-loved” means to you!

If we love what you show us, you could soon be driving your very own VW CPL vehicle! That's right, Volkswagen is giving you the chance to nab a Volkswagen Certified Pre-Loved vehicle! We’re picking 2 designers for this one! A US designer has a chance at the car and an international designer could nab an amped up Threadless awesome bag!

So what are you waiting for? Show us some love.
