Did you know over $500 billion is lost every year due to product underutilization and
the lack of recycling in the apparel industry alone? When seeing the added wasted resources our livelihood depends on, like water and clean air, it's clear that it's time for a new system.
We're Looptworks, a certified B Corporation, and we help brands and manufacturers regenerate textiles and products into value for the business, for people, and for the planet.
Have excess? Whether it be extra event merch, retired uniforms, dead stock, returned product, or excess fabric rolls, we can't wait to turn it into something new.
Looptworks started on the idea of using only what already exists. Today, we provide all services required to upcycle your textiles into unique, limited-edition products guaranteed to drive brand recognition and new business opportunity for your brand.
One of the most planet-friendly things we can do is extend the intended life of goods. We achieve this through a multitude of services like repair, recommerce, donation, and beyond.
If you're looking for a partner to handle your brand's product after-life solutions and we can help.
For over 10 years, Looptworks has provided clients with custom textile recycling options across the world. From liability fabrics to branded goods, we offer zero-waste-to-landfill solutions for products that have reached the end of their useful lifecycle. With processing hubs in North America, Asian, and beyond, we can meet the needs of global customers.
If there's one thing we know, it's that products and textiles hold value at every stage of their life cycle. That's why we help test the circularity of textiles for brands, providing them with insights and solutions for turning end-of-life goods into regenerated fibers.
We are leaders in closed loop systems, yarn development, polymer flake production, and beyond, but there is nothing we love more than finding a high-value solution for your "non-recyclable" products.
