    UP:CO is an online platform aiming to repurpose pre-consumer textile waste to transform it into high-value fabrics and garments. It connects upcyclers, manufacturers and the general public to help them exchange the unused fabric cut-offs. Using convolutional neural networks (CNN) and modelling softwares, it is able to maximize the use of textile waste in innovative ways, creating upcycled fabrics and garments. It also promotes collaboration with designers and fashion design students through an online shop that sells the upcycled materials.
