The Chrysalis Lab

Malibu Upcycle Atelier

What We Do: Chrysalization

Chrysalization means transformation. Curated vintage pieces are upcycled into wearable art. We strive to create new unique, one-of-a-kind, and limited edition collections relevant to the here and now and sustainable for the future. 

We also offer a Custom CoLab Service where we give new life to your own garments. Choose a piece from your closet to be reimagined and we will work with you to create new revamped clothing.
