At paraCyclage we make accessories and colorful jackets from old paragliders. We design products and turn them into unique pieces. With our project we want to make a contribution to reduce waste and at the same time spread the idea of upcycling.
Give it a second life!
At paraCyclage we cooperate with the French foundation "Ailes Pour Eux". This organization, created by enthusiastic pilots, receives paragliders that can still fly and donates them to pilots in need, in countries such as Tunisia, Madagascar or Cuba.
Therefore, all the gliders in good condition to keep flying are sent to the foundation.More information

"The idea is simple: recycle old paragliders and some safety parachutes and convert them into jackets, back packs and many other useful items. You have to have a look at their website. They can make almost everything out that fabric - just ask them for customizing your product."
— Albert Villarroya Farrarós
"The Jacket ADELA is a great memory from my first glider. The great work is highly appreciated! It's not just an amazing souvenir but also a very useful piece"
— Nicolas Jacquod

We present a new version of PAINE Plus Hip-Belt. In this model, we use 15-year-old elevetors as a belt and leave the maillon as a detail. Each end of the belt is attached to the body of hip-belt by upcycled paragliding lines.
