Upcycling Store

Under the motto “From remnants to raw materials” Vaude and Ebay have launched a small, exclusive upcycling workshop aimed at manufacture beautiful, useful products with creative ideas and skilled craftsmanship. This platform is an opportunity for creative people, sewing shops and community facilities to get very cheap material from which useful and aesthetic things can be tinkered, sewn or designed.





Sustainability Benefits

  • The residual waste bins from industries made up of textile off-cuts, scraps and general remnants are reduced by this initiative


  • The upcycling community shares knowledge and materials with other companies, schools and creative artists.

How does this work?


  • A concept for an upcycling store in 2019 in which eBay provides the necessary platform and VAUDE the necessary residual materials from textile production, was created.?
  • The proceeds are donated to Save the Children. In March 2020 the Ebay-Upcycling Store went online. Since then, all do-it-yourself fans have been able to bid on various residual materials and use them to make bags, wallets or other creative ideas.
  • The goal is to motivate as many companies as possible to also offer their remnants in order to protect valuable materials from the waste bin.
