Imparfaite works like a marketplace, which means that the products you find on the site do not belong to us but belong to third parties with whom we work. We do not have stock, everything is with the sellers.
For vintage pieces:
We collaborate with 3,500 vintage boutiques and professionals spread across the four corners of France and Belgium.
During their onboarding, we train them in the Imparfaite specifications: What parts we are looking for as a priority, how to repair them if necessary, how to take photos of them, how to put them online, etc.
- Product listing
Sellers then post their pieces online using a mobile application specially developed for them.
Our team of moderators then takes over to ensure that the piece corresponds to the Imparfaite criteria and then validates it to put it online.
When you place an order, we send the seller the sales notification with a prepaid slip so that he can send it to us. The average time for sending a vintage piece is 2 working days.
14 days after receiving the piece at your home, and in the event of no withdrawal on your part, we pay the item to the seller less our commission. It is then no longer possible to return the item.

As an individual, you cannot list pieces on Imparfaite.
For other pieces: archives and imperfects
We also collaborate with the most beautiful green fashion brands in France: Antik Batik, Ysé, Carel among others.
They entrust us with their dormant stocks (archives of old collections and pieces with small defects), which we make available to you during temporary private sales. These are very good deals because most sales are 70% off the new price.
Items ordered on Imparfaite that are part of private sales are in partner brands' warehouses. When you place an order, the brand sends the items directly to you. The average time for sending an archive item is 2 working days.
14 days after receipt of the part at your home, and in the event of no withdrawal on your part, we pay the item to the partner brand less our commission. It is then no longer possible to return the item.
