Mixed Rags Information: American Wholesale Clothing

Definition: Mixed rags refer to a category of used clothing, textiles, and cloth materials that are bundled together. They encompass a wide range of items, often with varying degrees of wear, tear, and usability.

Contents: Mixed rags can contain a diverse assortment of items including:

  1. Clothing: Dresses, shirts, trousers, skirts, blouses, jackets, etc.

  2. Home textiles: Bed sheets, curtains, pillow covers, etc.

  3. Accessories: Scarves, belts, handbags, ties, etc.

  4. Footwear: Shoes, sandals, boots, etc. (though these might often be separated depending on the seller).

Quality: The quality of items in mixed rags can vary significantly. The bundle may include:

  1. Reusable Clothing: Items in wearable condition that may have slight signs of usage but are still fit for resale or donation.

  2. Recyclable Textiles: Textiles not suitable for wear but can be recycled into rags, insulation, or other industrial products.

  3. Collection Bins: Clothing collection bins located throughout cities and towns.

  4. Household Collections: Direct collection from households that are decluttering.

Pricing: Mixed rags are typically priced by weight, considering the general quality and composition of the bundle. Since these are wholesale, the price is typically lower than purchasing individual items.
