Portland, Oregon-based Looptworks is on a mission to produce sustainable apparel. Motivated by the large amount of waste in the clothing industry, Looptworks creates a sustainable clothing line and accessories from upcycling unwanted fabric.
Looptworks apparel is made of pre-consumer waste including fabric, fasteners, thread, and zippers. Though the company founders are quick to point out that it’s better to buy used clothing than new, they recognize that some people simply won’t. They want to promote Looptworks as a greener alternative to other new clothing product choices.
