Our Sock Monkeys are a result of our self-expression, creativity and commitment to finding innovative ways to repurpose discarded materials into products with new value. We seek to eliminate the use of new, virgin materials and help to limit the world's carbon footprint in the manufacturing process by identifying ways to Upcycle and repurpose used or discarded materials. This innovative process has resulted in our having created our Sock Monkeys with a new value and sustainability to our world.
All of our Sock Monkey products are made from recycled materials that we obtain from discards. They are then hand sewn in the United States, at home by handicraft artisans, and they are all one of a kind. We seek to give back to our community by providing jobs and 100% Upcycled products.
What is Upcycling?
Upcycling is a process where used or discarded materials are re-purposed in order to create new, more valuable and useful products. As a component of sustainability the process of Upcycling closes the recycling loop.
