The Circular Economy

At World Design we collaborate with projects and designers that respect the environment as well as the artisans they work with. Some focus on upcycling materials such as our recycled magazine range, ostrich eggshell and cool tabs. Others use sustainable materials like the sisal and gold grass ranges.

We love the ingenuity of using telephone wire in combination with traditional weaving skills, of turning a bottle top into a beautiful pair of earrings. Society and the economy needs to move more towards eliminating waste, designing products and consumer cycles that are circular in nature, with replaceable parts and repairable. The recycle bin is the last resort!
