Handcrafting for the future.
Théla works with plastic waste – discarded plastic carry bags, garbage bags, food packaging wrappers and large sheets used in agriculture – to handcraft our upcycled fabrics.
These fabrics are then tailored in combination with natural and ethical materials to make products that are sustainable, fair and long-lasting.
From Waste to Yarn...
Discarded plastic is collected from garbage bins, streets and waste collection points.
Washing & Drying
They are then washed, removing all the stains and hung on a line or laid flat to dry.
Cutting & Balling
The clean plastic is cut by hand into yarn and would into balls.
To Products that are Sustainable and Fair.
The yarn is finally crafted using two techniques – crochet and weaving.
The plastic fabrics are tailored under fair trade conditions into fashion and lifestyle accessories.
The final product is as sustainable as it gets - upcycled plastic fabrics in combination with natural, vegan materials.
