RecyclingZychal's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Recycling Zychal, home of the handmade Upcycled Umbrella Dog Rain Coat and the birthplace of rescuing and repurposing the worlds broken umbrellas!

Everything you see on the site is made with broken umbrella nylon and is handmade by me, Taryn Zychal, in lovely Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We've been featured on/in Ladies Home Journal, PEOPLEpets, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Fox News, Tree Hugger, CNBC, The Los Angeles Chronicle, PetSugar, Inhabitat, GirlyGirlArmy, ReadyMade, GRID, The Toronto Globe and Mail, Philadelphia Weekly, Philadelphia CityPaper and are very excited about the attention being drawn not only to the products, but to our efforts to become a NEGATIVE Waste company- meaning going on beyond Zero Waste and achieving negative status by pulling things from the actual waste stream that go on to become sellable functional products. We also use every single scrap of material left after the original cuts, infact, many of our smaller products were designed around the parameters of the cut offs; resourcefulness is our passion!

Saving umbrellas from the bottomless landfills they would have wound up in is only half of it, we are currently accepting any and all broken umbrellas that you may have or find. If you are interested in donating some of your broken umbrellas or setting up a broken umbrella collection bin at your business, please message me for details and the studio address!

PLEASE NOTE: Nearly ALL of the umbrellas up for sale can be made into ANY SIZE DOG COAT. Many of the umbrellas are actually very large and don't require any special sewing treatments to patch the fabric together. If you have a large dog, please message me, we can work something out! :)

Unless otherwise mentioned, your item will get to you within 2 weeks of purchase date.
