Discovering a New Era of Wardrobe Management With PAKT

In the words of PAKT founder Barbara Yu Larsson, ”Looking after your clothes is just the beginning. PAKT is creating a full cycle wardrobe management platform that looks after the clothes you love. Our digital inventory lets you know what you have so you shop smarter, rent what you don’t need to own, share with your friends and sell or recycle so items never go to waste. Our aim is to revolutionize the way we relate to what we wear.”
