This post is salutation to those designers who create stunning designs out of day today waste and other small little things to inspire me!
What is day today life made of?
A lot of waste occupy space in everyday life in form of plastic and omg! – newspapers (I am always accused of keeping newspapers till ‘the newspaper pillar’ touches the roof!!); so I am happy to discover these designers.
And a little greenery and small buttons also cheer me up!

ALL materials are factory rejects from independent manufactures and have never been used. These same materials were certain to be sent to a land fill or garbage dump only to pollute the earth more!
