Made Entirely From Recovered Textiles.

This is waste, reimagined.

To date, we’ve saved over 10,000,000 textiles items from entering landfills across Australia. Whilst a portion of these items are suitable for reuse through our trusted charity partners, many are not fit-for-wear and ready for a new life. That’s where UPtex comes in.

Completely Circular By Design.

Closing the loop on textiles for good.

Circularity has always been the goal. We knew if we were going to introduce anything into the world, it would always have to be developed with the product’s life cycle in mind. So we’ve done exactly that!

Through our entirely mechanical recycling technology, any UPtex product can be placed straight back into our process to be given a new life again, and again, and again…

Say Goodbye To Virgin Materials.

The possibilities are only limited by our imagination.

UPtex Features

MADE FROM
RECOVERED TEXTILES

Clothing, linen, and other textiles that are no longer fit for reuse are diverted from landfill by UPPAREL and transformed into our revolutionary material, UPtex.

COMPLETELY
CIRCULAR

When an UPtex product reaches its end of life, it can be returned to UPPAREL and recycled all over again, resulting in zero waste and supporting a circular economy.

ENDLESS
POSSIBILITIES

Through our experimentation, UPtex can be used in a wide variety of applications including signage, homewares, acoustic panelling, and packaging.

PRINT
COMPATIBLE

UPtex is compatible with a number of eco-friendly printing techniques such as UV printing. This process also doesn’t compromise the material’s recyclability.

VARIABLE
DENSITIES

We can produce UPtex at an array of densities and thicknesses depending on the required application. This ranges from soft cushioning to rigid panels.

WEATHER
RESISTANT

Thanks to the combination of natural and synthetic fibres, UPtex can endure harsh outdoor conditions without warping or distorting.
