I’m a upcycled hairband and I used to be fabric. Our team member Luna collects old fabrics from neighbors like old clothes, curtains, table cloths or any she can get her hands on! Than we wash the fabrics thoroughly and create these unique hairbands out of them! The hairbands are made in cooperation with Maanvis Design a Pop-up store in Amsterdam. By doing this we upcycle the used fabrics and make sure you can wear them instead of throwing them away. We believe we used reuse ALL our materials so we create a longer lifespan for these materials and be part of the circular economy.
After reading this ready to give yourself a recycled present or give this sustainable gift to a friend? Then feel welcome to be part of The upcycle Community by purchasing the Upcycled Hairband!
Materials in the Recycled Bracelet – Chain Up
At The upcycle we believe in honesty so that why we add to all our product a list of what it is made of, even though we try to upcycle/recycle as much as we can sometimes we need to buy new materials to make the upcycle products viable for sale. But we’re always looking for new ways to improve our products and if you have a good idea reach out trough our contact form!
The materials used for this Upcycle product are:
- Fabric (Upcycled local fabrics collected by neighbors)
- Wire (Upcycled from used wire from scrapyards)
The Upcycle Store
It’s also possible to come over to our store in the city centre of Amsterdam, Sint Annendwarsstraat 13. A store filled with alle The upcycle products you’ve found online and many more! Because some upcycled products are so diverse of nature (every piece is unique) it’s hard to sell them online. In our store you can go NUTS in buying recycled gifts or just to be inspired how.
