Upcycling on a Tiny Scale


Isn't that pretty? That tapestry of color is a bjd dress, created by aloiVViola (Viola Voigt) :

She "affectionately collects" various bits of ribbon and fabric to make the clothes; the photographs are lovely, too. She notes:

The 21st Century is characterized by the loss of natural resources. But through social change Upcycling is by now en vogue. Recycling doesn't exploit our planet further and awakens unfashionable and rejected material to new life.

It also makes one's basement full of tupperware (looks guilty). Perhaps we are "sequestering carbon" this way.
