The IWAS Upcycling Difference
At IWAS, we believe in giving waste materials a new purpose. Not by recycling, but by upcycling. We create and design a new purpose for each object, respecting its unique, original material and character.
From Waste to Must-Have
We look for beauty in a range of waste materials. A rubber band, glass bottle or burlap coffee bag has the potential to become a real must-have. Our partners in India and Indonesia collect waste products so they don’t end up in a landfill.
Upcycling specialist IWAS gives waste such as glass bottles a second life. The difference between upcycling and recycling? We give old materials such as glass bottles, rubber tires and burlap coffee bags a new purpose in a creative way. With respect for the unique, original properties of the material and through craftsmanship and smart design. While recycling is an energy-intensive process that reduces products to raw materials so that they can be reused.
Hand-Made with Love
All of our products are handmade by local artists in India and Indonesia. We give back to their communities by providing sustainable employment opportunities and valuing the work of these local communities. Each of our upcycling partners is part of a larger story.
