Sustainability is an element that we love to incorporate into our business! All of our designer goods are upcycled from pre-loved bags that are worn or broken, allowing us to turn them into something new again. If you have a designer bag with a gorgeous pattern, one that is hard to find, or one that has a sentimental meaning to you, we'd love to turn it into a few beautiful new items! This donation program was created to offer you a way to hold on to personal items or wear them in new ways! 

Here are a few guidelines for what we accept:

  • Monogrammed or iconic patterns of any designer, including but not limited to, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Fendi, Burberry, Goyard, etc.
  • Any designer leather good, such as wallets, handbags, luggage, garment bags, duffle bags, etc.
  • Any varying degree of slightly worn, faded, or completely broken goods 
  • Only 100% authentic designer goods

Steps to Upcycle Your Bag with Spark*l:

Have your bag authenticated with Authenticate First.

Authenticate First is a reputable website to accurately and quickly prove the authenticity of your bag. Coated canvas or leather is preferred, however, other materials may be accepted. Please email hello@sparklbands.com for initial approval prior to authenticating.

To use Authenticate First, all you have to do is create an account for free, start a new order, upload photos of your designer item, and select the option for a Certificate of Authenticity to be emailed to you. After submitting your request, it will take 24 hours for you to receive your certificate. This step is extremely important to maintain Spark*l's commitment to using only 100% authentic designer goods. The fee you pay to authenticate your item will be included in the amount of your gift card or for your chosen accessory.

Complete the Customer Form to send us your information.

After you receive your Certificate of Authentication from Authenticate First, fill out the following form to send us all your information including:

  • The Certificate of Authenticity you received from Authenticate First
  • Your information, including full name, email, address, and phone number
  • Pictures of your bag from different angles, along with its dimensions
  • Choice of a gift card and/or custom product

We will review your information!

Once we receive your customer form and the provided information about your bag, we will review, and if approved, we will send you an offer for your bag in the form of a gift card or accessory based on your preference. The amount you'll receive in a gift card depends on the size, condition, and the current resale price of your designer item. If we send you an offer and you accept, we will send you an email with a DocuSign Agreement and the terms of the transaction!

That's it!

Once you send in the DocuSign Agreement and ship your bag, we’ll send you your choice of gift card or item made from your bag. If there are any problems with the bag, a customer service representative will reach out! Thank you for helping us promote sustainability!
