Chute Laundry

For Millennials who want to elevate their style but don't have the time or expertise to do so... or just want clean clothes. Chute is a platform that connects users' to local laundry pick-up and delivery services. That not only clean, but photograph and catalog peoples clothes in order to create an entirely new recommendation engine Unlike platforms such as StichFix or Trunkclub that rely off of quizzes and past purchases to infer what people want, Chute bases their recommendations based off what people are actually wearing.
