About speakers

Ms Yuki Liu (Co-founder, UPCYCO)

“We can no longer tolerate factories and shops throwing away the usable textile to the landfill.” From early man to the modern day, leather has been an enduring feature of almost every era of design and fashion. However, humans have been taking leather and other materials for granted. Because each year, thousands upon thousands tonnes of materials are discarded to the landfills, creating masses of usable waste. Therefore, starting from the end of 2018, Upcyco began rescuing scraps of leather waste by re-thinking innovative use of these waste materials. The signature upcycling products of Upcyco is the stitchless wallet. Without using extra materials, we created a wallet by just using an interlocking system. Since the materials are collected from industry, each wallet is unique. Also, we provide job opportunities to those who are in need, especially mothers who want to work while being able to take care of their children. Flexible works can help the disadvantaged women to gain extra income to support their daily life.
