What is Upcycle?

Chic Mona UpcycleIt’s my passion, to produce or reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of better quality or value than the original. Giving a unwanted item new life. Up+Recycle

With upcycling, an item is no longer being used for its intended purpose, but is repurposed and given a new purpose, eg- Excess upholstery fabric fashioned into handbags.
