i often think about how artists can be wasteful and hurtful to the environment. i find annika bloomberg's work to be very ethical and inspirational. she gives a new life and purpose to otherwise wasted materials; the pins above are braided with scrap thread, and the backpacks are made with salvaged fabrics and umbrellas. objects that come from the would be trash are now beautiful creations with a rich history. more ANSCHTECKA is for sale at SPECKS & KEEPINGS, also check out what else annika has been making via her blog repurpose.
