The art of upcycling (repurposing waste into cool designs), has risen over recent years. If you’re one of those people who love to get crafty with the way your recycle, then take a look at these five blogs and immerse yourself in the fascinating world of zero waste design!
Happy National Upcycling Day from us at ATTYRE!
1. Upcycle Studio
Founded in 2013, Sydney based blog Upcycle Studio was created by a team of people “passionate about good design as they are about our planet.” The blog is particularly focussed on fashion and homewares, and they even have a shop where you can purchase contemporary upcycled pieces such as messenger bags made from reclaimed truck tubes and MOJO cases (their own brand), made from repurposed suitcases and house speakers, for a truly retro feel!
