Such a fabulous glasses case - I keep taking it out of my bag to admire and am probably putting my sunnies on/ taking them off more than strictly necessary. Thanks so much!

About

Upcycling Design - Bags from used leather couches

I began my RCYC bag series when I fell in love with the leather of the couches I found on the streets of Amsterdam. In most cases the leather was in perfect condition and I liked the idea of recycling it (that's when the name RCYC came in my logo).

In an earlier stage, in a workshop textile silkscreenprinting, I found out that old leather skins absorb the ink very well and so I could continue to work further on this experiment.

My preference for monochrome, graphic designs inspired by nature appeared to work out well with the beautiful shades of the suede and accentuate the idea of recycling. Each leather skin I found varied widely in color and I am always challenged to find a 'personal color' for the prints on the suede skin.
