made by Kelly O
Kelly O is a designer and maker based in Edinburgh where she creates upcycled accessories from single-use plastic bags. Each hand-crafted item is unique. By fusing together several layers of plastic carrier bags using heat and pressure, a new ‘fabric’ is created that is significantly more durable, lightweight and waterproof. This new fabric is used to create functional everyday accessories that will last for many years, keeping the original materials out of the landfills and oceans.
