Accepts clothing, bedding, belts, and shoes from thrift stores and clothing stores. Some of the material is shipped overseas to be reused, while some is cut into rags and used for industrial purposes.

A small percentage of the defective clothing (e.g. clothing that is missing buttons or has tears, clothing with manufacturing defects, etc.) is shipped to "fiber converters" who shred the defective clothing and convert the material into carpet padding or upholstery.

Also accepts shoes, which are processed for use as upholstery, or shipped whole to less developed countries for reuse.

The company's administrative offices are located at 439 Arroyo Road, Santa Barbara 93110. Their factory is located in Santa Maria.
