Upcycled Hip

Recycled denim products speak to a consumer desire for hip, eco alternatives

Implications - With a desire to be perceived more eco-conscious, consumers are choosing upcycled products created from materials like denim to communicate a sustainable ethos as well as keen fashion sense. The utilization of recycled materials decreases brand dependency on new materials, which in turn decreases costs, increases sales and creates a hip, eco aesthetic that appeals to young consumers.
