Baseball Wallets

Coach has gone back to their roots by introducing a heritage collection of upcycled baseball wallets. In 1946 Coach was inspired by baseball gloves to make soft-wearing leather wallets and billfolds. This latest collection is a tribute to Miles Cahn, the man who pioneered this process for Coach. As a result of this success, the company also began to make women’s handbags, for which they are now renowned.

Summer is just around the corner in the Southern Hemisphere, but anytime is really a good time for a homemade bubble blower! This upcycled toy is easy to make and you likely already have the materials. Make your kids a bubble blower to play with outdoors or bring it inside for a new level of fun at bathtime!

REcreate

Opposite the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, Cape Town is Katie Thompson’s delightful store Recreate. Recreate is an upcycler’s dream. It’s filled with gorgeous repurposed suitcase chairs, milk bottle lamps, clocks, bucket stools and ottoman tubs.

Plastic Bottle Flowers

Some see discarded plastic bottles, others see plastic bottle flowers that can be used to create dramatically beautiful curtains, light fixtures and room dividers.

Upcycled Can Planters

We made upcycled can planters from empty BOS Ice Tea cans. BOS Ice Tea is a South African ice tea company and have sustainability as one of their core beliefs. BOS plants 1 tree for every 2000 cans sold to offset their carbon footprint. We thought the beautiful cans would make for awesome kitchen herb planters. Learn how we safely removed the top of the cans to do so.
