How We Recycle And Upcycle -
A Partnership with Upparel

Ina Swim is proud to work hand in hand with Upparel, a leading name in recycling and upcycling ventures.

The Process At Upparel


Once the textiles have been picked up and arrived at the warehouse, every item will be identified and sorted through to ensure whether the item is fit for wear or unfit. Each item is graded by the sorting team of Upparel and analysed to be sorted into two overarching categories: reuse and recycle. 

For the items that can be reused, these will then be separated into subcategories, like women’s bikini, children’s bikinis, and hats. 

Textiles like damaged, worn-out, and stained clothing cannot be reused and will be sorted into different categories depending on their suitable recycling channel. 


Items that are still fit for wear will be picked up by charities, social enterprises, and not-for-profits. Every charity and social enterprise is Australian-based. All items remain onshore. Unused items will be given to the next charity.


Items that are not fit for wear, Upparel breaks down into a variety of categories depending on their material and decommissioning required. Items will be turned into fine fibers and either repurposed within the Upparel factory or given to other industry leaders as suitable feedstock for their recycling approach. Upparel ensures that no textiles, fabrics, or yarn are thrown into landfill.
