Up-Cycled with: the Wild Salvages of Los Angeles

With the holidays and all the

excess that surround us during the season now past, we thought it would be a great time to play with repurposing items many people already own. People all over the country have caught onto the idea of Up-Cycling, which “is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value”*. LA based upcyclers Carrie and Rita, known as the Wild Salvages, have come up with some great (and colorful!) projects for anyone wanting to get creative while staying warm these winter months. They also show some great pieces from their shop that may take a little more effort, but certainly keep great furniture and accessories from a waste dump.
