What our customers say
I absolutely LOVE this backpack! The colors are a bit darker than the picture (straps are black and the denim is VERY deep blue as opposed to light) but that didn’t matter very much to me. The material is very thick and sturdy, the straps and adjusters work well, and it came with a hand written note and a reusable tote bag! So excited to use it daily!
Brittany Von Wahlde (Fort Worth, TX)
Beautifully made and fantastic quality! Love that it’s made from recycled material! Thank you so much!
Jackie Child (East Brisbane, Australia)
The small tyre tube sling is a must have for everyone. It is cute as well as very handy. I’m not worried about the Bangalore rains soiling my bag anymore. I know they are safe. Also they go with my Indian and western wear? What more do I need? Nothing! But what it also gives me is a lot of space to keep my things. It is not crammed at all. Love it love it love it
There’s so much about Rimagined that’ll draw you back to them. It’s not just those pleasant colors which is the first thing we notice. Shailaja has an eye for details. Apart from the fact that they bring life back into used and thrown materials, all that she creates is utilitarian, brilliantly put together, there’s so much strength and intelligence in its design and build, perfect finishing. There’s no way you won’t rave about it and there’s no way heads don’t turn when they look at it.
The carpet as well as table are upcycled. The table is made with wine carts. The papasan chair we have kept from 2009. The sofa is refurbished as well.so, glad that we have kept oldies and added upcycled furniture! Thanks for the addition.
It’s the perfect size! I love it!

Why Upcycling is important!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
In Recycling, the base material is broken down and transformed into a different product, which is also quite resource intensive. This also results in deterioration of quality of the material. So eventually the material will have to dumped after some rounds of recycling.
In Upcycling, the material does not undergo any breakdown and it gets repurposed into a new product using innovative design. So looking at the Upcycled product, one can make out the base material that is used. The other phrase that can used for upcycling is “Extending material lifetime”. There is no loss of quality and the same material can keep getting repurposed using creativity. This is also not a resource intensive process.
The challenge with waste materials is that they don’t disintegrate and affect the environment adversely. We use this negative aspect of the material to our advantage when we repurpose them and create high quality products.
All the products are created to last long, without compromising on the aesthetics. Also we ensure that the accessories like the zips, pullers, lining material we use are all of the best quality so that every design we offer is of premium quality.So if the question is how long will the product last - our answer is “Longer than you can even imagine”.
The key to Upcycled design is that we work backwards. We first see what material is available with us at that particular time. And then based on this availability, we work on the product designs. So this does not allow us to create custom apparel. We always offer a capsule collection of Apparel, with also the constraint of the sizes that can be made available. The length of the fabric determines our offering.
Our idea is to offer our customers an upcycled alternative to most of the products one might use in every day consumption. So we also work with a wide range of materials which include Denim, Tyre Tubes, Fabric, Yarn (Cotton, Wool, Silk) , Wood, Glass
Upcycled products are perfect for gifting. We ensure that our designs are unique, quality is perfect and every design has a utility element to it. So the next time you think of gifting or you are receiving a gift, we would encourage you to check out an Upcycled alternative as your first choice. If you can’t find what you need, check with us. We might be able to make it for you.
We also do international shipments. But the shipping charges will depend on the destination location. Do drop us a mail at email@example.com with your requirement for International shipments.
Yes, we do take fabric waste. This can be your clothes, sarees, curtains, bed sheets. But we would request you to send it to our workshop located in Kolkata, India. For further details, you can drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The key process as part of any upcycling we do is cleaning of the primary waste material. Every single piece of denim, tyre tube, fabric gets a thorough wash before we even use it. And to ensure that we follow a chemical free process, the entire cleaning uses natural cleaners like Reetha (Soapnut). This also helps us bring to you a product that does not undergo any chemical treatment and follows our philosophy of environment first.
