Eco-Artware Upcycled Treasures and Gifts
I love Eco-Artware’s wonderful selection of handcrafted goods from many crafty green artists. They have a wide variety of items to choose from including kids stuffed animals made from upcycled sweaters, jewelry made from old pennies, typewriter keys, and watch faces, bowls made from old records and signs, coasters made from old unplayable vinyl records, and my favorite- baskets made from chopsticks.
The chopstick baskets are made from used chopsticks that are cleaned and sanitized, dyed with tea and then crafted into this amazing basket that folds flat when not in use.
Another brilliant item that I love at Eco-Artware is the set of vinyl record coasters. Jeff Davis is a designer that creates cool stuff from unplayable records. The coasters are cut from the center of the records and laminated to protect from moisture. The result is a retro set of coasters music lovers will flip over.
There are many other items at Eco-Artware that I am currently coveting, too bad most of them are out of my price range like the Raven on a Heart, the vintage watch face bracelet and the typewriter key rings.
