In my next life I want to come back as a shopper bag

dinsdag 9 april 2013

I always scan the broken furniture that piles up next to the garbage containers hoping for hidden jewels. So far, not much luck. But you always hear about people finding beautiful vintage cabinets or chairs on the street, don't you?

Someone that I know for a fact has found treasures on the sidewalk is designer Jackie Emily. Where we see an old couch with ripped upholstery, she sees: bags. That's the thing with creative people, they just need the raw materials to make something beautiful. The only thing that still reminds you of a previous life as a cast away leather couch or jacket is the tag that tells you what your new bag used to be. Now, that's what I call recycling! Have a look at the finished product on Nith.

P.s. Have you ever found anything good on the sidewalk?
