Vogue has named upcycling as one of the biggest trends of 2021, but to the next generation of conscious consumers, upcycling is not a trend; it’s a new era for fashion.

As it stands, the fashion industry is not sustainable; each year, 1.5 trillion tonnes of water is used to make clothing; and out of the 100 Billion pieces of clothing that is produced each year, only 1% are recycled into new clothing.

The world is continuing to churn out new garments at an alarming rate; it is estimated that we buy around 1.13 megatonnes of clothing in the UK…


Our mission is to reduce textile waste, Looped is a community of conscious creators redefining fashion.
