SEATTLE — If your closet is overflowing with old clothes, think twice before you throw them away. Those old pieces are brimming with the potential to become stylish new items with just a few alterations. 

Looptworks, a sustainable style brand based in Portland, knows all about upcycling. The Portland-based store makes all of their products out of recycled materials, saving them from the landfill. Founder of Looptworks Scott Hamlin joins New Day Northwest to show us the art of the upcycle. 

If sewing isn't your thing, Looptworks also offers a sewing service to transform your scraps for you!
