Hi, Welcome to Upcykl!. We repurpose old denims into stylish and trendy handbags and clutches. All of the items in our store are made with 100% recycled materials; fabric scraps sourced from local designers, boutiques or denims donated by people in Kansas City.
More than 15 million tons of used textile waste is generated each year in the United States alone, and the amount has doubled over the last 20 years. An average American throws away approximately 80 pounds of used clothing per year.
Our Mission at Upcykl is to give previously loved items a second life, create Earth-Friendly fashion accessories, reduce waste levels, carbon emissions in environment, conserve water and keep re-usable items from ending up in landfills.
We lovingly hand make everything in the store and since everything is made from recycled/upcycled fabrics, there is only one of each kind and that's what makes each Upcykl bag unique. :)
Please support our cause to reuse and recycle fabrics and prevent them from ending up in the landfills.
