RETRO RANGE- UPCYCLING – BEING
At Lotus Silk we are determined to contribute to the efforts of decreasing the devastating impacts that the cotton industry has on both people and the environment.
This is where our upcycling comes in, as we source large quantities of recycled fabrics from garment factories in Phnom Penh, as well as ‘end of roll’ fabrics from Japan, Vietnam and Korea.
Upcycling is essentially the process of using old or ‘waste’ fabrics and garments, and refashioning them into a new, better quality product. We use upcycled materials in the production of our Retro inspired clothing, and in our collection of bags.
Upcycling reduces waste and gives new life to something that was already existing and once loved, creating authentic and unique items.
