While cruising the web yesterday, I came across a Polish blogger and maker who blew me away with her remarkable hand-crafted baskets. Monika, over at her blog, zapleciona, upcycles/recycles newspapers into beautiful ‘wicker-like’ baskets. The baskets are woven with lengths of newspaper instead of wicker. To protect the basket surface she uses a clear acrylic lacquer. These baskets are not only eco-friendly and unique, but durable and practical as they can be used to store almost anything including your newspapers!
Yes, these are really made out of recycled newspapers! To view more of her baskets and purchase them, go here.
