“The team is very welcoming and friendly.”

We used uptrade to launch our first made-in-France and 100% eco-conceived collection. We loved the quality of the fabrics. The team is very welcoming and friendly. That’s a partnership we intend to keep going!

“Just what I need to stay agile in my own creative process.”

I discovered uptrade at its early beginning and they made a great first impression with a very reactive team, great at understanding your actual needs. My first order did not disappoint either. It was quick and fluid. Just what I need to stay agile in my own creative process. I look forward to making this a long-lasting collaboration.

“An approach just perfectly suited for young brands.”

Eléonore and Charlotte have always been able to answer my needs after taking the time to understand them. Such a great range of fabric and an approach just perfectly suited for young brands like Bleu M. Long live uptrade!

“Cared for a more sustainable fashion.”

Working with uptrade meant working with a team that heard our needs, answered fast and actually cared for a more sustainable fashion. We’ve worked on several collections with them and were perfectly happy with the result each time thanks to quality fabrics our clients really loved. They offer so many references we always find our perfect match!

“We’ve been working with uptrade for several years now.”

We’ve been working with uptrade for several years now. They allow us to get rid of our stock end, even when it’s just a few rolls, and make an interesting benefit from it. Both the process and the payment are fast and hassle-free.

“A good way to sell your sleeping stock.”

Congratulations! I can only confirm how efficient uptrade is and be the living proof that there is a good way to sell your sleeping stock. DBvetpro is taking a firm stand on sustainability through recycling and upcycling, so we are very happy to have found uptrade. It’s the perfect virtuous circle: we clean our stock, get cash in and help designers out while recycling all that fabric.
