Design Industry since 2009


The Upcycled Trading Company provides a range of beautifully designed products, bespoke upcycling commissions and workshops to clients and customers throughout Kent and the South East.

The Upcycled Trading Company

The Upcycled Trading Company was created by founder Claire who began studying interior design in 2009 and went on to work on a number of varied residential and commercial interior design projects.

This experience helped develop a strong appreciation for quality over quantity and this has been the inspiration behind the business. What began as a hobby upcycling unloved but quality furniture developed into a business focused on providing upcycling commissions and selling upcycled furniture.

This expanded to a shop selling the materials needed for customers own upcycling projects as well as gifts and accessories according to the principles of conscious consumerism. Every piece of furniture, gift or accessory is either carefully re-purposed, upcycled, eco-friendly, fair trade or hand-made by local makers and artisans.

The shop is based in Folkestone Creative Quarter at 48 The Old High Street and is in good company amongst an exciting variety of creative and independent small businesses.

Whether it’s stocking the handmade, upcycled and repurposed furniture and products of other local contributors or providing workshops so that customers can try their hand at upcycling projects of their own The Upcycled Trading Company supports local, and understands the importance of collaboration over competition.
