Jean Cards

I am always on the lookout for unique ways to upcycle. repurpose. recycle.

Today I found a company that is recycling jeans (and other cool materials) into cards. Paperworks Studio.

from Paperworks Studio
Here's what Paperworks Studio says about themselves.

"Paperworks Studio is a successful mission-based, market driven social enterprise. We've doubled in the last two years and are on pace to double again this year. Our production team of artists are people with special needs and disadvantages. They are a great team and while working at Paperworks Studio, learn valuable life and work skills and gain self-esteem. This allows them to obtain more independence in their lives.

The artists make beautiful handmade cards, one-at-a-time,no-two-are-alike, from recycled materials and lots of LOVE!"
I encourage you to check Paperworks Studio out and maybe even make a purchase.  I know I will be.
