Make Somethng Week x Threadapeutic

 

Though we have been upcycling fabric offcuts for the past 3 years, it is still a delight to be invited by Greenpeace Indonesia to do an Make Smthng upcycling workshop for the public.

Terima kasih Greenpeace Indonesia telah mengajak kami berbagi pengalaman tentang upcycling dan slowfashion. Mari, jangan ragu menggunakan bahan bekas dan sisa untuk berkarya!

Make Something Day

MAKE SMTHNG

We were excited to collaborate with Greenpeace Indonesia by organising a beginner’s coaster upcycling workshop that encourages creativity, resourcefulness, inventiveness, community and sharing. Its purpose is to encourage us to reduce shopping for new things by sharing, caring, transforming and repairing what we own – while keeping it fun, beautiful and forward thinking.

We’ll gladly do an upcycling workshop!

Coverage by Korea Institute of Design Promotion

Ms Minjeong Cha wrote, “I do love your business model that impacts people’s life. Hope for all the great things with your beautiful work, and wish my article could be a bridge that make you better known in Korea.”

Thank you, Ms Minjeong, for appreciating our effort to empower by upcycling.

Banner Bags

Banner Bags
We use banners in the construction of many of our bags. When used as inner linings, they add form and structure to our products. We also do not shy away from using banners on the bags’ exteriors, inventively mixing them with other fabrics and applying different techniques to vary texture.

Sackcloth bag

With a stock of sackcloths that used to contain peanuts, we decided to get creative. We took advantage of the strength of this material to create heavy-duty bags. We have tastefully incorporated stamps, scribbles, and logos from the original sackcloths to retain their authenticity.

Prism Bag           

This nifty, lightweight, prism-shaped bags can carry everyday essentials: your wallet, mobile phones, keys, and other trinkets. We have also constructed them such that they can be stored flat when unzipped, making them convenient to pack for travels.
