Large amounts of fabric are produced around the world to make clothing. Yet only 15% actually becomes clothes. The remaining 5 million tons per year are incinerated or used as landfilll – a waste of resources that burdens both workers and the natural environment.
Upcycled flower vases were conceived of to make practical use of leftover fabric. The fabric is wrapped around glass and plastic bottles to create flower vases instead of being disposed of. Since the vases are handmade, the particular characteristics of the leftover fabric can be optimally utilized. The fabric can also be folded and space-efficiently stored away when not in use.
