As time goes on, and people become more ecologically conscious, creativity blossoms. How do we make the most of the resources we have? I love featuring shops that use resources that most people would normally throw away, and this featured shop is no exception. Meet Rumi, owner of RumiArtShop, which is based in Oreshak, Bulgaria. Using scraps left over from leather apparel production, RumiArtShop handcrafts home decor & 3D wall art statement pieces that are sure to strike up a conversation at your next dinner party or family gathering. Opened earlier this year in April, RumiArtShop has over 50 items currently in stock for you to choose from! Here's my top 3 picks from Etsy shop RumiArtShop:
3D Hand-Painted Leather Wall Art Decor, Wooden Plate, Hand Painted Ceramic Vase, Leather Roses, Leather Leaves, Unique Gift $45.00
Unique Wine Holder, Leather Monster Face, Home Decoration, Wine Lovers, Original Wine Holder, Cranky Wine Holder, Brown Wooden Wine Holder $60.00
Handmade Ceramic Mask, Leather Mask, Wooden Eyes, Leather and Wooden Earrings, Coloured Leather Art, Home Decor, Wall Decor, Wall Hanging $35.00
Until next time, stay crafty (and buy handmade)!
