Looptworks [ looped wurks ] noun. A Portland, Oregon based business that upcycles or re-purposes abandoned, pre-consumer and post-consumer materials into limited edition products.
At Looptworks, the only thing we scrap is the typical way of doing business. We're a design brand on a mission: to use only what already exists.
All the materials used to create Looptworks products at one time were headed to the landfill, or worse.
We intercept and utilize these industry excess materials, transforming them into new, useful products — a process known as upcycling. Our sustainable, eco-friendly products are made in limited editions, and in the process save materials from landfills or incinerators.
Choosing to support upcycled goods over products made using virgin materials, keeps quality excess from being disposed of. In the process, limited natural resources are conserved and carbon emissions are reduced.
To us though, upcycling is just the starting point. Our long term goal is to work towards closed-loop (Loopt) solutions in manufacturing, hence our name: "looped works"
