Upcycled simply means when discarded objects or materials are reused in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original. The Upcycled system turns textile waste from the apparel industry into valuable new yarns for use in commercial upholstery fabrics. Here’s how it works: old garments and textile waste are deposited at collection bins, sorted, processed and spun into new yarns ready for weaving. The result is a textile that can be used to make a space beautiful while also making a positive change for the planet.
