[ looped wurks ] noun. Since2009, Looptworks has empowered people and businesses to create less waste through circularity partnerships, education, and limited-edition upcycled products.
We've been transforming excess textiles since 2009.
After a decade working for Royal Robbins, Jockey, and Adidas, Oregon-born surfer Scott Hamlin brought his zero-waste dream to life.... to help put an end to textile waste.
Looptworks launched with a mission to recover some of the 17 million pounds of excess textiles from the landfill and transform them through circular solutions including recycling, upcycling, and downcycling.
We're bringing our circularity solutions to brands and people like Patagonia, Southwest Airlines, Google, Billie Eilish, Jason Mraz, Adidas, United Airlines, and many more.
Where do excess textiles come from?
Ever wonder how all this excess material is generated? The fashion industry is the biggest culprit. Click here to read more about how the textile industry generates high quality pre- and post-consumer excess that ends up in the landfill.
The current system is linear, but the future is circular.
What exactly is circularity? We're glad you asked. Today, products are created without consideration for what happens at the end of their life. In most cases, this means they end up in the landfill. Circularity transforms this system by designing ways for materials and products to be reused and repurposed infinitely so we don't have to rely on virgin resources.
All of the materials Looptworks works with were headed to the landfill, or even worse — the incinerator. We divert these excess materials by extending their life as high quality upcycled products or by downcycling them into home insulation or energy.
