The teacup artists

2nd°

Teacup lamps from Karlsruhe 2un° - is made up of two designers (happily and conveniently married), who have been dealing with materials like bulky waste, secondhand items, or random finds from attics and basements for a long time. 2un° was created in 2011 by combining the two labels tassenlampen and dammerstoff.

Valueless everyday items are crafted into new valuables and unmistakable unique pieces of art. Just like that, porcelain is transformed into new lamps and other things. The source material is always at the center of attention, it's always supposed to remain visible. The things used are evidently old, rich in history and memories. Value that isn't material at first, but that can only be felt. 2un°'s prime principle of production is to put these non-material values forward again.

The designer duo creates real pieces of art that meet the standards of serviceable and beautiful living accessories. Last but not least, 2un°'s works also sharpen the perception of the observer and induce a change of perspective.

AC Greenshop

Rice Sack Deluxe

While traveling through Asia we saw our first AC Greenshop product: A friend of ours in Thailand was sporting one of their bags and we were instantly hooked. We were sold on the brilliant design and the coherent concept so we set out for Cambodia, straight into the family-owned shop. In wonderful detail, AC Greenshop crafts used rice sacks and cement bags into handbags and wallets - exclusively for Upcycling Deluxe.

There are fish swimming on the wash bag, there's a stork grinning at you from that wallet, and there's an elephant marching on that pouch. Everything is one of a kind and handmade in Cambodia. Everything is of top-notch quality and all the inside pockets you need make all of these bags super practical. AC Greenshop has given a second life to old cement bags, a life they would never have dreamed of. Be it purse, pouch, or wallet - thanks to the anti-tear, robust, and waterproof material they are indestructible!

 

 

Authentic Ring Bags

of ad:acta

History to go!

Every year, tons and tons of binders are discarded, thrown away and destroyed - and so is the unique history of these individually labeled bundles of knowledge. Munich-based designers Carsten Fichtel and Tobias Förtsch are trying to perpetuate the very spirit of the important, the informative and the unknown with ad:acta, their own line of bags.

Each of these massively stylish bags is made of one carefully selected binder that has been unburdened of its typical lever and rings and waterproofed to face wind and weather. The binders are combined and refined with German leather and finshed with a sturdy textile lining. Everything is handmade in Bavaria.

We are proud to bring you this addition to the Upcycling Online Store: authentic and sustainably made bags with a lot of love of detail, in different colors, sizes, and styles. The bags have up to three inside pockets and offer enough space for your laptop. The spines of the binders and the individual patterns are left as they were. That way, each bag is unique...out of the office, and into your life!

 

 

 

Furniture from Alsterplanke

Wood furniture with history

Alsterplanke is a young upcycling company founded by two "Hamburger lads", which realizes authentic wooden furniture made from reclaimed manually scaffold planks, preserving the characteristic traces of their former life. The scaffold planks have up to 70 years  and turn every upcycling bed, table and shelf into a real unique piece of furniture.

Every piece is manufactured in Hamburg exclusively by hand and in cooperation with various Hamburg-based non-profit initiatives. One important thing for the guys at Alsterplanke is, that only handwork can  guarantee the high quality of the furniture. The scaffold planks are purchased directly in the Hamburg region.

Each scaffold board is carefully selected and checked by hand. The planks are made of spruce wood with two metal fittings. The surface of each scaffold board is sanded by hand and then sealed with a natural and high quality wood oil and wood wax. The wooden furniture is thus more resistant and the sturdy solid wood character is made more visible - for another long life as a high quality piece of furniture!

Notebooks by Deafmessanger

Paper recycling at its best

Kucin - that is the name of the young artist behind prague-based label Deafmessanger. It was on one of his many travels that he came up with the idea to turn pieces of paper that he found into colorful and creative notebooks. He's been making them from thrown out magazines, playing cards, plane tickets and photos from around the world ever since. Kucin basically finds all that he needs in the streets - on park benches, at bus stops and in paper bins. He adds a finishing touch to his work by emblazing each cover witth one of his trademark spray-paint stencils.

Discoclock´s Vinyl Wall Clocks

Style that travels through time

Discoclock's incredibly stylish wall clocks are an absolute must-have - not just for vinyl lovers. Italian designer Massimiliano Stefanutti punches a wide array of wall tickers right out of used records he gets from his DJ friends.

They come in all kinds of wonderful and wacky shapes which, according to Stefanutti, are supposed to hit each customer's individual taste. We think he's doing a great job at that. These things are so cool we'd just hang them on our walls without the clockwork!

The clocks have been awarded the "eco-friendly" label, because not only are they made from a recycled material, they're also made in a sustainable production process in Italy. Each Discoclock's individual past, as indicated by the original logo, makes it unique!

El Reinventor

Time Travelling Objects

El Reinventor is a project pushed forward by Colombian Daniel Carrion Rivas. Actually, Daniel has studied finance but always has had a weak heart for product and jewelery design. In 2010 his hobby led him to Berlin. Eversince, Daniel finds the materials for his unusual artistic and creative work mainly on Berlin flea markets.

Guiding principle of Daniel's work is to reuse old objects and to reinvent them by doing so. Why throw away something if it can come back to life as a stylish designer piece that will still have a long, sustainable living on? In El Reinventor’s studio wonderful chandeliers and lamps made from the most unusual materials such as bicycle rims, hangers and even old musical instruments arise. To put it simple: El Reinventor makes upcycling into art.

Night Lamps by Medu-Light

MeduLight for darker nights

Ella Spector, a visual artist and props designer from Israel who has worked on many sets in different decor departments, is the face behind Medu Light. Her main piece of work, Medu Light, was born in April 2012 as part of a recycling exhibition that was presented at the recycling center of Israel.

Medu is made by hand, with tons of patience, in Ella Spector’s studio located in the heart of Tel Aviv. Medu needs 2 AA batteries, can be easily hung up anywhere, even in your garden, between the trees. Medu is a beautiful night light, for a kids room, the hallway or anywhere you want it to be.

Messenger by Faith

Meaningful Fashion

“FAITH Meaningful Fashion” was started by Sylvia Bobay, the Chairperson of Friends Kinderhilfe International who lived for 7 years in Sri Lanka where she initiated and implemented educational programs for orphan and under-privileged children and their families just before the Tsunami hit Sri Lanka in December 2004.

“FAITH Meaningful Fashion” was started by Sylvia Bobay, the Chairperson of Friends Kinderhilfe International who lived for 7 years in Sri Lanka where she initiated and implemented educational programs for orphan and under-privileged children and their families just before the Tsunami hit Sri Lanka in December 2004.

In the search for a stable income in order to fund these sustainable educational projects, she had the idea of producing and selling fashionable bags by up-cycling FAITH Kites which are produced in Sri Lanka by her husband Marcel. FAITH Meaningful Fashion emerged from the “mother company” FAITH Kiteboarding in late 2013 and is based in Zürich, Switzerland.

 

When Sylvia realized that one of their employees of the charity in Sri Lanka was a very talented tailor but that he never got the chance to come up in life, she bought him a sewing machine. Her husband provided old FAITH kites in order to start the bag production.

Each FAITH bag is hand made by Ranjith under fair trade conditions which allows him to earn well and ensures him and his family a stable income. The entire profit of the sales of the bags goes to Friends Kinderhilfe International e.V. (www.friends-kinderhilfe.com). The purchase of each bag ensures a better future for many childre in Sri Lanka by providing access to education in a child friendly environment.

Fancy hats by Panama

Hutgalerie Berlin

Unique is chic!

Panama Hutgalerie’s unmistakable hats, berets, and caps are our supreme deluxe products. Panama’s motto: Every piece is one of a kind. The manufacturer keeps on coming up with new gems to cover our heads with - made from re-used coffee bags.

Their unique “Fancy Hats”, which is also their brand name, are designed at their studio in Berlin before they are expertly tailored by a family-owned business in Sulwaki. Their current line “coffee to go” is made from upcycled coffee bags and stands out with good taste and its distinct, timeless design. Because each printed bag is individually cut, each hat is unique. The hats are lined with cotton or faux fur from other designers’ leftover stocks, because they have no use for small cuts of lining material. All the better for Panama Hutgalerie: all these different textiles are welcome additions to each hat’s unique character.

Café Cappuccino

In its former life, Café Cappucino was a classy jute coffee bag. Now, light-bodied and sophisticated, it’s the perfect companion, through thick and thin, for all of life’s treasures. The rough 100% jute outside is contrasted by a soft pure cotton lining.

 

Black Coffee

Black Coffee, too, got to hang around coffee beans in its former life. The jute ex-coffee-bag now roams the nightlife with you. It’s a baseball cap that will fit every head thanks to an adjustable closure. 100% jute are a nice contrast to its smooth pure cotton lining.

 

Café Espresso

Are you torn between wearing a coffee bag or a cool flat cap on your head? At Fancy Hats, you get to do both.

The winter model stands out with its warm and snug fleece lining and its fold-out ear flaps

 

Cafe Macchiato (Fidel Castro Style)

Café Macchiato used to be a mighty sturdy Cuban coffee bag. Get this Fidel-Castro-style hat and start rebelling in the streets and on the shores of Havana or Sylt. Just like the other models, it’s made of 100% jute and cotton. Add some fold-out fleece ear flaps for cold weather with the winter model.

 

Cafe Olé

Just a hat ain’t enough – each one of these is unique. This well-traveled and sophisticated coffee bag likes to adorn the heads of both ladies and gentlemen in the shape of a casual but elegant pork pie hat. It comes with a elastic and easily interchangeable hatband. The hatbands come in the colors bordeaux, brown, black, and olive.

 

Cafe Doppio (Pilotenmütze)

In its second life, this former jute coffee bag likes to soar around the world with you in the shape of a super fly aviator hat. It makes for a great companion, especially in those nasty cold winter months. The rough exterior is 100% jute and is contrasted by its snug and cozy faux fur lining.

Kilus Foundation

Flashy & unique

If you're really into colors, you'll love the bags made by Manila-based Kilus Foundation: What used to a printed drink carton now gets another go at life in the shape of a pouch or bag. More than 500 women pick the cartons before they are washed and processed. Thanks to the water-repellent material you're all set to bring our beach bag to the pool, the sauna, and, well, the beach.

The women's cooperative receives the bulk of the cartons from nearby schools, where they are collected specifically for the project. The cartons are washed, cut up and braided intricately. This makes each bag a true eye-catcher. Kilus Foundation got the ball rolling for us in the first place: Kilus was the first ever company we contacted, so working with them has always been a matter of the heart for us. Thanks to flexible work hours and the possibility to work from home, the workers are able to balance their jobs and family lives. With this project, the women not only receive a safe income but also recognition and self-confidence.

Interior Design by KO-J

As neat as a koi

Ko-j Design stands for exceptional small furniture and other gems for your apartment created by Leipzig-based designers Sibylle Hansen and Aulia Muhammad. Since they founded Ko-j in 2004, they've put their name on the map mainly with their vibrant Koi-themed dinner plates that are hammered out of disused oil drums by hand before the beautifully illustrated Koi are added by an artist.

The surface color of the bowls and the furniture mirrors the oil drums' long history of usage and is thus not reproducible.

The designs are realized and handcrafted in Indonesia in small quantities. The furniture and dinner plates are edged and folded, but not welded, at their own shop. This gives them a distinct, authentic look. Ko-j design doesn't stop there - they also craft mirrors and lamps from old oil drums. It is of particular importance to the designers that their co-workers in Indonesia are payed fair wages. After all, everybody should profit from the beautiful pieces they create.

Stationery made from

elephant dung

Jumbo Poo Deluxe

The family-run company Eco Maximus from Sri Lanka was originally set up to recycle waste printing paper. The original operation was located at what is now the “Millennium Elephant Foundation” near Kegalle in Sri Lanka. It did not take long, however, to realize that the six resident elephants living there are a natural material source. Maximus soon established that elephant dung was a perfect material to produce paper with. The consequence was the introduction of the signature “Elephant Dung” paper range.

Despite being registered as a Limited Liability Company, the company objectives and mission are very clear. The key stakeholder of the company is the Elephant! In other words, the foundation on which Maximus rests is based Conservation, primarily that of the Sri Lankan elephant. Maximus aims to use the “Elephant Dung” paper to create and then further raise awareness to the tragic circumstances that surround the Sri Lankan Elephant.

Carboard lampshades

by Pierre Guibert

modern design from paper

Actually, young French designer Pierre Guibert studied architecture in Nantes. After he graduated in 2012, however, he decided to pursue a hobby that, at the time, was really more of an experiment: product design. In his shop in Berlin, Guibert mainly works with recycled cardboard. He creates simple but surprisingly creative lampshades in different shapes and sizes from cut-out circular cardboard rings that are layered and glued together - at great effect. Warm, cozy light gleams through the layers of cardboard, and every room is suddenly drenched in a unique kind of light. This is brilliant design with simple means and a lot of handiwork!

To make their stylish furniture, rafinesse&tristesse cooperate with several social institutions in Berlin and Bern.

Mats by Rubber Soul

Not Just Another Mat

For millions of people, especially in Asia and Africa, the well known flip flop toe slippers are their only footwear. For that reason flip flops are being manufactured on a massive scale. They are punched out of reinforced synthetic rubber. The left-over rubber is too often going to the dump as a waste product.

Fortunately this is not always the case, thanks to the family-run Dutch company Rubber Soul. In Manila in the Philippines the left-over flip flop rubber is being recycled in small cooperation based workshops into a handcrafted beautiful, cheerful, feel good design item: a mat, but Not Just Another Mat. It is sustainable, handcrafted, multi purpose for inside and outside – and a long lasting beauty. Recycling can be so colorful!

Printing blanket bags by Sag + Sal

Classy things hot off the press

Berlin-based manufacturers Sag + Sal use exceptional resources for their equally extraordinary bags: old rubber blankets that are used in offset-printing machines.

The material is composed of solid rubber, compressible rubber, and several layers of textile and is thoroughly cleaned before being processed into the final product. The shoulder straps used to be furniture carrying straps. They are extremely tear-resistant, heavy-duty and resilient, and consequently almost indestructible.

The color of each finished bag depends on the printing blanket it is made from. Colors like orange, red, or purple are very rare colors when it comes to printing blankets. Bags like these are only made in small numbers, so there are only a few of them available in our online store. Sag+Sal brand their logo onto the textile side of each printing blanket. The logo is then put onto the front of the bag. Each printing blanket has a unique industrial history, along with paint marks, tints, and serial numbers. This makes each bag unmistakably unique.

Bike Tire Belts from

Tire Belt Company

Strong Waste Treads

Turning bike tires into belts was something Tire Belt founder Giuseppe Gimmillaro came up with trying to think of a nifty Christmas gift in December of 2007, while working his job as a bike restorer. In his adopted home, Berlin, Italian native Gimmillaro has been designing new versions of his rad belts ever since - made from used bike tires!

Tire Belt Company stands for the idea that something new and useful can be created from used and worn-out bike tires – plain and easy by changing their purpose: off the road and onto the waist! In the German capital, the old tires are individually cut open by hand, cleaned, and then put together into belts

Gimmiallaro points out that the original damage to the environment caused by the rubber is reduced by about 85 percent!

Uca Ruffatti

The racer among bags

Family business Uca Ruffatti has made the impossible possible by creating high-quality designer bags from used semi-truck inner tubes and coffee bags. Each bag is a real eye-catcher with love of detail - from the exterior to the lining. Their product line covers everything from keychains, to wash bags and purses. Each bag features elegant patches here and there, that tell of the inner tube's former life. You can't even tell anymore how many times each bag has been down the road, the quality just can't be topped. From the shop in St. Ana across South America all the way to Germany, they're now available exclusively at Upcycling Deluxe! Carelessly thrown on the side of the road as trash, the inner tubes and other materials become precious resources for Uca Ruffati. The team also collects used tires and inner tubes at landfillls orfrom shops. The rubber is washed, cut up, and treated for processing. It is then combined with recycled coffee bags, textiles, artificial leather, and nickel before being crafted into incredibly classy bags.

The El Salvador business also stands out for fair labor conditions and wages. Collective thinking and social surplus are given the highest priority at Uca Rufatti. Each worker is contractually employed and receives above-average pay. Whenever there is a shortage of orders, the normal wages are still paid out, time is then used wisely to support design development or is invested in further training.

Sailor bags and more by Unzer Esser

Fashion for the urban voyager

Maximilian S. Schippmann, founder of Berlin-based brand Unzer Esser, creates surprisingly modern bags and sailor bags from 100% recycled canvas for today's urban sailors and sailorettes. The high-quality bags made from from sailcloth or old marquees are extremely robust and water and weather resistant - thanks to the special cotton fabric. Rain, wind, and water have left their marks on the re-used material. This makes each of our handmade bags exceptionally unique. Only two years after it was established, Unzer Esser already stands for top-notch quality. Not only is this proof for a great sense of fashion, it is also proof for the great durability of its products.

5 panel caps and wallets made out of vintage scarves. Recycling-Streetwear by Valorisation Lab, a young upcycling-label from Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. The brand’s name itself comes from the French word “valorisation” which means to increase the value of a product by its modification or transformation and thus generating something new. The label uses outdated goods and vintage fabrics to create new and one-of-a-kind fashion accessories. The brand was founded as a one-product brand producing 5 panel caps. Now, the label produces wallets, too. Fort the exclusive 5 panel caps the label uses only vintage scarves. For wallets, ties are instead. All the scarves and ties are collected at thrift shops or auctions. Each and every piece goes through the hardest stage of the creation process itself, which is cleaning, before the production process starts. After various treatments only the most durable and quality primary fabrics are kept. The used materials vary from silk to polyester; each cap is lined with natural viscose to make it even more comfortble. Every Valorisation Lab. 5 panel cap is uniquely designed, which makes it one of a kind!
