Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new materials or products of better quality and environmental value. We believe in upcycling. Each Sail Resale upcycled product is unique and hand made in Chicago. Our goal is to make beautiful, durable gear that will last - with zero waste. Our upcycled products feature heavy duty YKK zippers, stainless and bronze grommets, stainless shackles and hand spliced three strand nylon.
