Our greenest division of DGD Media, Trash to Treasure recycles everyday items, and all kinds of old trash, as well as fabric remnants, into new and exciting home furnishings, fashion accessories, fun clothing, works of art, and home Décor. You may even find holiday decorations in this collection. (Check out our Garbage Can Ghosts)
Many items in this collection are hand crafted, one-of-a-kind items, that can ad a unique look to your home or office, or help you create a look that stands out from the crowd. As these items are handcrafted and one of a kind, there are some irregularities and inconsistencies that often occur with handcrafted items. We endeavor to create each item as unique as possible; therefore we tried to avoid using the same collars materials and patterns for more than one item.
Place mats, throw pillows, coasters, pot holders, candle sticks, pencil cups, book ends, and picture frames are just a few examples of what you might find in the home furnishings section of the Trash to Treasure store.
In the fashion accessories section you might find bags, purses, binders, organizers, belts, scarves, gloves, jewelry, belt buckles, eye glass cases, and many other unique accessories. Accessories found in this collection can be for men, women, or children.
My use of recycled materials started when I was just starting as a tailor and custom designer; I didn’t have a lot of money to buy new materials with so I had to work with what I could get my hands on. From there it evolved into a separate collection as the country got more-and-more into the recycling craze. Now it has become a way to minimize expenses and get maximum use from the materials I have.
Custom clothing may be hard to sell as you need to fit it to the client, but accessories and home furnishings have a much higher turnaround, as there is less concern about size, and fit.
What I am going for here is 100% recycling of the things I use every day, and would normally just throw away or toss into the recycling bin. So as this line grows you may see more and more items displayed at our Trash to Treasure store; items made from an ever growing variety of recycled items.
