A tool from youngcaritas Berlin (Germany)

What do you do?
From an old JACKet to a stylish backPACK – how is that possible? With upcycling you transform so called waste into unique items! You want to oppose fast fashion trends in our throwaway society, you want to prevent waste, save resources and have fun while sewing a product you can sell and thus turn into donations for social projects? Start your
upcycling project and combine sustainable behavior with social action.

What do you need?

  • Old jacket or other old clothes (clothing donations)
  • old belt loops, a cord, thread, templates
  • scissors, a sewing machine, tailor chalk, pins, flat iron
  • 2-3 hours
