Meet The Artists!

Join The Artist Idex!

The Upcycle & Refashion Artist


What started out as limited meeting in separate, individual Social Media Groups, has now evolved into a movement to unite Upcycler & Refashioner Artists as a collective via


Participation in these groups– like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok or Pinterest– is often inspired by different motivations from simply wanting to show off a new creation, meeting like-minded others, growing a social media following through links, or driving traffic to ecommerce sites like Etsy.


Regardless of motivation– UpcycleMode is now providing a platform to not only connect Upcyclers & Refashioners, but also give others an insight and maybe some inspiration into what Upcycling & Refashioning is all about.


Here, Artist is defined as ANYONE who creates, regardless of skill level.


It takes imagination and focus (& guts!) to turn a cast-off into something new, contemporary/vintage, stylish or functional.


You too can be an Artist today! All you need is a building block (textile or hardware), simple tools like scissors, and glue or thread, and your imagination!


I hope you enjoy meeting these Upcylcers & Refashioners as much as I have!
