Materials & Sustainability

Threads
Upsygals uses vintage cotton thread and recycled polyester thread made from plastic bottles.
 
Fabrics
Upsygals uses preloved garments each picked by us, giving them makeovers as well as unpicking them for a total reconstruction into a whole new art. Garments often used are kimonos, shirtings, jeans and so forth. 
 
Trims
To reduce even more unnecessary carbon footprint, Upsygals also uses old trims and embellishments collected from preloved garments. New trims or embellishments will only be used when absolutely necessary on rare occasions.
 
Packagings
Upsygals is using 100% compostable mailers made from plants by noissue. The mailers can be reused then composted at home within 180 days or 90 days in commercial composting conditions. 
 
Noissue mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a compostable bio based polymer, and PLA made up of plant materials like field corn and wheat straw. The bags also smells like yummy pop corn!
 
Every order will also come in a cute and unique reusable pouch handcrafted by us using reclaimed grain sacks and fabric scraps to show our love for you supporting us and Mother Earth! ♡
