Scarf Necklace made of old t-shirts

I like Ecoist online shop because they sell products that are very creative, they look wonderful and they are affordable. And most important, they are made from recycled and reused products that you never imagined being transformed into such nice pieces of design. Here is an idea that anybody can do at home.
Without great efforts, you can put your old t-shirt to better use: Saako’s Summer scarf-like necklaces are made from upcycled t-shirts and factory remnants. Made in Portugal by Spanish and portugese textiles. You can choose from
more models with crazy names like: Cobra, Safari, Leopard or if you prefer, buy an uni color. They have black and white neckalces, red-mustard or purple and yellow. They all look great and they are lightweight. Price: 58 $.

Handmade knitwear from Berlin. Recycled leather bags made by the twin sisters Daphne and Vera Correll. The two sisters are very skilled in hand-stitching, dyeing, weaving and knitting.
They made a brand of their own in 2006 and now they work in their studio in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The bags are
built by straps, twisted woven belts, overlaping layers of fisihng material and strings. Each bag is unique because the combination of the re-purposed materials that are not alike. Bags measure aprox. 25 cm. Via here.
