Up-cycling is something I hear more and more about. To the extent where I’m even toying with the idea of ‘up-cycling’ bits and bats myself and selling them on to make ends meet (not sure where I’m going with this idea, but it would sure be a more interesting way of paying the bills than waiting tables).
With this in mind, I should probably learn from the best – step in ‘Lost Property of London’. Using ‘abandoned fabrics’, LPOL’s up-cycling approach means they create not only unique and stylish products, but eco-friendly ones as well. Check out these bags made from coffee bean sacks (images from Liberty).
LPOL make it look so damn effortless to turn some scrap fabric into a must-have accessory. Not sure if my own attempts to the same will prove quite so easy but it’ll be worth a shot, no?
