Upcycling: Innovative way of textile waste management

Suman Sodhi, Vivek Singh and Nisha Arya
The environmental impact of the textile and fashion industry is becoming a mainstream issue. Not only production but consumption of textiles also produces waste. To overcome this problem upcycling is a creative project which definitely helps to reduce the textile and apparel waste and save natural resources. Upcycling of apparel is a physical process of reusing apparel waste by renovating and redesigning them with greater value as per latest fashion trend. Discarded or unused clothes which are not in fashion can be given completely new look to match with current fashion trends by different construction, designing and surface embellishment techniques. Apparel waste can be upcycled in number of ways. They may be made entirely from discarded or unused apparel. They can be created from pre-apparel waste that is left on the factory floor and post-apparel waste i.e. discarded or old or unused garments.
