This chapter explores the relatively newly coined upcycling process as a viable recycling method for re-suing what would otherwise be textile waste; and compares the upcycling process with a typical fashion production process model. The barriers to be overcome by the fashion industry are identified should an upcycling process be adopted for mass fashion production, which has already been earmarked as an emerging industry. The chapter concludes with some solution suggestions.
