Upcycling is the latest cool thing everyone is sinking their hands into. What it is is instead of simply throwing out an old piece of item, people are pausing to see if they can reinvent it into something new. It basically means turning your trash into treasure, and with that said, almost anything can be upcycled: from clothing, furniture, and other found objects!


Upcycling is not only a great way to keep up with what’s new, but more important, it’s a trend that’s extremely beneficial to the environment. It keeps materials from going into waste in landfills, and reduces the amount of materials required for manufacturing something new.



Other than the reasons above, another great thing about this eco-friendly trend is being able to own something completely unique, and then of course, there’s the satisfaction of making something yourself.


Work-Shop is holding a class on May 27th where you can transform your old leather items with paints, and turn it into something unusually lovely. You don’t even need to be artistic to pull off a fashionable look for your leather piece! Here’s an example of what you could come up with:
