Upcycling at its Best!

After years of working in the fashion industry, the one topic that weighs on my mind most is this -- What happens to all that excess fabric waste? And what do we do with our clothing when we're done with it?  Is there a smarter way? 

I recently stumbled upon a company called Looptworks and they are diligently working to address those very same issues. They are a small group of industry veterans with years of experience at some of the biggest clothing companies in the business, who came together to make a change. Their business model is ground-breaking. 
They re-purpose abandoned materials into meaningful, quality products. And best thing about it... they are custom one-of-a-kind pieces. My inner hidden hipster just did a little dance.  Check out their website and specifically the page about Upcycling with them. How cool!!!
