Prague’s trash is cooler than some of our treasures. Though we’ve been hip here to the repurposing movement [ie: reworked vintage], designers of the Czech Republic are using computer and mechanical parts to create sweet accessories, home goods, and the coolest bar behind the former Eastern Block. In fact, one of the main designers behind TrashMade introduced @OzSultan and I to the aforementioned hotspot. Take a look.

This necklace is made from computer cable sleeves. TrashMade has been working with REMA Systems since 2005 – it is a company that collects technological waste. TrashMade is a whole community of artists, designers, producers and a team that sifts through the waste collected at REMA and selects what can be transformed into accessories.  580 CZK or roughly $32 TrashMade

They participated in DESIGNBLOK – the “fashion week” of Prague. Local boutiques and designers showed their wares October 4th-9th. More on this later.
