Sustainable fashion has become a significant trend not just internationally but also here in the Philippines, as more people have become more aware of the negative impacts that fast fashion has on the environment. We are now further introduced to upcycling, a sustainable fashion that repurposes materials to create new and unique pieces. One material perfect for upcycling is the katsa or sackcloth, used to pack cornstarch or flour. Also called flour sack, this latest fashion discovery entails creativity and advocacy in one!

Recycling vs. Upcycling

For those confused about the difference between recycling and upcycling, here’s a quick take on the two: recycling consists in breaking down an unused product or item into its raw materials and using those to create something new. On the other hand, upcycling transforms an old or discarded thing or product into something of better quality and higher value.

Upcycling flour sacks and turning them into trendy fashion requires creativity and skill. It also has a more significant environmental impact by reducing waste, which can benefit environmentally and economically.

Fashion evolves and improves to cater to what you need, like these upcycled katsa clothing as perfect summer outfits for both men and women! Score these katsa fashion pieces while advocating sustainability for the betterment of our environment.
