“Reusing” becomes an aesthetic asset for trashion : a rapidly spreading trend which employs discarded objects as raw materials to redefine our concept of fashion and design from an eco-friendly approach.
One example is Vaho : a catalan shop specialized in handbags made out of recycled materials particularly event-advertising billboards . As expressed in its webpage , the product starts once the event finishes. After being selected, the billboard canvases are cleaned then manufactured in local social rehabilitation workshops. This trashion design company also crafts products made out of tires . The collection of Vaho items includes bags, handbags, wallets and laptop cases all made from discarded graphically relevant pvc canvases which would be burnt otherwise. Vaho also displays ingeniously crafted furniture made of metal containers or antique bathtubs . One could say that if you could literally carry Barcelona´s agenda it would be through one of these bags.
