Upcycling means transforming clothes, accessories, and textile waste into new products. Upcycled items can be post-consumer waste (items that have been purchased, worn, and discarded) or deadstock (items that did not sell). Whatever the origin, upcycled textiles are reclaimed and reconstructed to increase their value.
