Upcycling is here… handbags &wall pouches crafted from old garments

With environment conservation being high on everyone’s mind, upcycling has caught the fancy of not just environmentalists, but even regular folks. Making use of old garments such as kurtis, salwar kameez, duppattas and night gowns to stitch out colourful handbags and wall pouches is becoming popular with people in Bangalore.

Asha Haldipur is one such woman who has effectively utilized her stitching and embroidery skills to craft out unique products. Her wall pouches can be used for keeping clothes and knick-knacks, and as letter-holders. While the handbags can be carried along while grocery-shopping or used as hand purses.
