It seems that recycling and creativity are really close these days. Designers seem to be challenged by the fact that they have a worn, useless, ready to be thrown away object which have to make it desirable again.
Lori Marsha is a California based independent designer who makes one of a kind clothes, jewelry and accessories. Everything she makes incorporates vintage or recycled components.
Talking about clothes, if you have too many of them which you don't need any more here' s a cool way to reuse them: sew them together and make a carpet. I found this on Ecoble in an post about creative recycling ideas.
And if you want to try some creative recycling yourself, why not make a bag out of an old sweater? On WhipUp you will find an easy tutorial about it.
