Style & Quality
Up-cycled items often have both a better quality and a higher environmental value than they had in their original state! What else makes up-cycled items so desirable?
They are created with innovation and creativity!
With up-cycling, an item is no longer being used for its intended purpose, but is re-purposed - given a new purpose - and along with this new purpose, it is also given an increase in value, both aesthetically and monetarily.
It is worth more in its new form.
"Up-cycling is designed to work in opposition to consumer culture, encouraging people to think of new and innovative ways to use things, instead of simply buying new consumer goods. It also benefits the environment by promoting reuse over discarding whenever possible."
Lovingly Handmade & Reworked
All the pieces in the Fused line have been lovingly made by hand or reworked in some way to produce the distinctive final products in these categories.
