Remember when the thought of products made from recycled materials brought to mind gum-wrapper necklaces and bottle-cap studded picture frames? Maybe I just wasn’t paying attention back then, but it feels like we’ve come a long, innovative way.
Necktie Wallets made by Jetsam
We didn’t set out to have a “recycled goods” store – nor do we exclusively have one now. But in sourcing contemporary, functional home and personal accessories for the store, we soon encountered a number of amazing design-forward artisans and producers who work with materials that had a previous life. And the results are fresh and beautiful. Here are just a few of our customers’ favorites so far.
Wood homewares made from mango trees after they have completed
their 20-30 year fruit bearing cycle from Enrico Products.
Belts, dopp kits, wallets, and other recycled bicycle tube
accessories from Alchemy Goods.
Glass plates from artist Laurence made from post-industrial recycled glass
(and she makes the beautiful boxes they come in, too!)
