Our selection is narrow and includes both individual pieces and custom products. In this way, we aim to ensure that we do not, for our part, cause overproduction.

We also strive to reduce waste textiles through the quality and timelessness of the range. We hope you will find our selection of long-lasting favorite clothes and credit accessories.

In addition to new products, selected second hand pieces will have a new chancec in our online store.

Lainaamo

Also works with Upcyler Lainaamo, through which you can rent clothes and accessories. In this way, we aim to offer more diverse options alongside purchasing.

Transparency

We strive to provide as much information as possible on the materials and manufacture of the products, and on the specific features they are chosen for our shop for.

    Supporting local production and entrepreneurship

    As a Finnish company, we want to support the opportunities for fashion designers to operate in Finland and thereby diversify the options available to consumers on the market.

    Sourcing local also contributes to reducing the carbon footprint. Transport distances are short, and many of our products have arrived at our warehouse even on foot or by bike:)

    Energy consumption

    We share the warehouse space with another Eastern Helsinki company. Our warehouse utilizes solar energy and geothermal energy.

    In daily work, transport distances are minimized and transports from the warehouse to the mailing point are also made by bike, weather permitting.

    Responsibility in e-commerce deliveries

    Our deliveries are packed in recyclable cardboard boxes or paper or cardboard envelopes. Most packaging materials are already recycled in themselves and can be further recycled. Products are not individually packaged in plastic.

    We want to avoid unnecessary transportation of products. We ship to Europe, but global shipments are not part of our range.

    In addition, we make a donation for each outgoing order To Istutapuita.fi to increase the carbon sink to Karhulansuo in Kouvola.

    #-Resistant clothing

    On April 29.4.2020, XNUMX, we reached the Finix project Pioneers in the sustainable textile sector in Finland. The Finix project operates under the auspices of Aalto University and studies the sustainability of the textile industry.

    The criteria for admission to the list are the use of recycled materials, a business strategy to reduce the use of materials and actions to ensure the longevity of the product. Manufacturing in Finland or neighboring areas is a support criterion that employs, strengthens expertise in the field in Finland and, almost without exception, ensures the realization of human rights in manufacturing.

    Upcycler is listed in categories:

    • significant use of recycled and surplus materials
    • opened its supply chain
    • plan and action to ensure the longevity of the products
