Uprolls was born from dreams and needs. We dream of making the World a better place. We also sense an urgent need to reduce the load on our home planet in order to keep the Earth clean and green for our children.
Uprolls carries the new environmental philosophy. Recycling and upcycling have become norms in the current era of resource exhaustion. We found valuable raw materials among industrial waste, which is routinely sent to landfill.
We upcycle heavy-duty cardboard rolls that originally carried steel roof sheets. The rolls gain a new life in Uprolls’ design and production facility, and turn into chairs, poufs, tables, lamps, pet furniture etc. Also the fabrics used in production come from waste materials of the furniture industry, where we pick out good quality textiles.
Uprolls contributes to the saving of material and energy, which would otherwise be used for the production of elements for analogous products. Also industrial waste disposal costs are reduced by the upcycling process.
