What is Upcycling?

Taking an item that would otherwise be discarded or recycled and reconfiguring it into something else. When something is recycled it is broken down into a new fiber or material and made into a new product. Upcycled items are frequently used by artisans to be recreated into something purposeful and beautiful!

Why Fisher Cat Fiber Co?

Late one afternoon we had a strange and unusual animal swagger through our yard. I had never seen one like it before. with some research we believed it to be a fisher cat. My biggest regret is I didn’t take a picture! Some close friends and family members razed me a lot about, not believing that was what it could be. It was right at the time at the time I was launching rug making into a business. Fisher Cat Fiber Co, has a nice ring, don’t you think?
