About

A bag of garbage turned out to be the first Garbagebag. Why?

Once upon a time when I was studying in a handicraft-school I had to manufacture “a gift that reflects recipient’s personality”. I was short of money and therefore had problem of getting together the material. Luckily I then visited my mother while she was cleaning her wardrobe. She gave me all the clothes she didn't need anymore and there was a solution to both of our problems. My mother got rid of her “garbage”, I finished my exercise for the school and my friend received “a gift that reflected her personality”.

In the beginning of the 21st century I woke up to think what a wasteful way of life I was living. I had piles of unnecessary stuff all over the place and every now and then i still wanted to buy something new. To my opinion it is sometimes necessary to cheer up everyday life with a new garment or a piece of accessory. However I don't want to be the worst case of dissipation of natural resources. At that point I remembered my experiment of recycling my mothers “garbage” and I had the idea of putting up Garbagebag.
