Creative recycling

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.

Έγραψες πάλι! Φανταστικές δημιουργίες, ειδικά το φορεματάκι και οι τσάντες. Για άλλη μια φορά βρίζω που ο ελεύθερός μου χρόνος έχει καταντήσει "είδος προς εξαφάνιση"...

Το φόρεμα είναι ένα ποίημα! Και οι τσάντες, κορυφαία και οικονομική ιδέα για δώρο! Το blog σου είναι υγκλονιστικό! Μπράβο.
