#CycSatellites is a human-centred fashion upcycling project designed to address the overproduction, excess inventory and environmental pollution problems in the fashion industry.

By placing human skills and reskilling as its priorities, #CycSatellites redesigns and upcycles the excess fashion stock and turn it into marketable apparels in completely new fashion lines. It will create additional cash flows and values to the apparel companies with little cost while ensuring the negative environmental impact is reduced to the minimum. #CycSatellites intends to build a global network of satellite cities with experienced designers and craftsmen to get engaged in sustainability solutions that will reshape the global supply chains in the fashion industry of the future.
