“from Trash to treasure” Munenari Maegawa’s recycled accessory collection.
Artist Munenari Maegawa has created a witty collection made from discarded packaging which would have added to the landfill. She takes packages for items like M&M’s and McDonalds and turns them into pop culture pieces of clothing.
This vibrant colourful collection includes vests, ties, bibs and ribbons. Munenari Maegawa’s series ‘Package’ has achieved originality and sustainability . The vest in this collection is made from washing detergent boxes- how brilliant to be able to give a second life to the packaging of your washing powder!. The M&M tie is one of the most original of the collection.
‘Package’ leads the way in highlighting how recycling one person’s trash can definitely create ‘treasure’ for another!
