THE CIFF UPCYCLE COLLECTION - reuse of materials already produced

From February 2nd - 4th we are at Copenhagen Fashion Week at CIFF in Bella Centret with a very unique production. 

From old collections or dead stock fabrics, and in collaboration with some of our favourite Danish design brands, we have crafted an one-off collection of boxes, notebooks and keyhangers – to show the value of surplus material and to jointly show the willingness, the creativity, and the beauty of upcycling.

At August Sandgren, we believe in durability as one of the primary factors for improving the current environmental state of our Earth. We share the aim of finding solutions for waste with the nine brands we partner with, which are Aiayu, By Malene Birger, H2O Fagerholt, A Piece Of Favorite, Soft Gallery, Englebørn, Mads Nørgaard, Designers Remix and Baum und Pferdgarten.

This exhibition is meant as a conversation starter – as a symbol. It is one idea of many, on how to jointly work on reducing waste by using surplus materials in production and create new durable objects from it. Beautiful and valuable objects.
