Upcycling Tattered Nepali Silk With Meb-Rure Furniture

Raw silk fabric that’s used to create beautiful garments and other goods from Nepal just so happens to have waste as much as any garment that gets created these days. Instead of dumping the scraps into a landfill or an area similar, company Meb-Rure has created a way to keep reusing the silk pieces in a fashion forward and unique way.

The silk is transformed into colorful sponge balls that are then wrapped in silk pieces of varying colors. Women of Nepal construct any of the three pieces in this collection ranging from: chair to ottoman and stool. American white oak provides the framework for all of the pieces, and each can be somewhat flat packed and legs attached by hand. A beautiful concept to reduce, reuse and recycle!
