Pretty please can you get this Esty vendor to make more of these denim ornaments? Kind of obsessed and been a real good girl all year.

Love, Greta


50 Shades of Denim

 

British artist Ian Barry a.k.a. “Denimu” has abandoned all mediums except denim, which he’s been collecting and repurposing into stunning, detailed portraits and landscapes. What was his “ah ha” moment?

“I found myself staring at them, mourning the old pants from my youth,” Denimu states on his website. “I was transfixed by the ripped, faded beauty of the fabric. How the different blues contrasted against each other in a sea of shades. I couldn’t part with them; they were part of who I was then. And who I am now. I remember it was a time in my life when I was looking for a voice when I suddenly realised that what I had been looking for had been there all along.”

Wonder if he knows Marilyn was a fan of the denim on denim


Merry Christmas!

We’ll have a blue Christmas … and love it.

Leftovers: Denim style

Happy Black Friday! And while we’re all bitching about leftover Thanksgiving food (get ready for some Turkey Pho) and dreading those insane shopping lines today, think about your other leftovers … like denim. We came across this Wide Bread blog post called “25 Things to do with Old Jeans.” With a few helpful steps from this blog, you likely can skip those long lines and make some one-of-a-kind gifts with your recycled jeans.


Recycle your denim!

The Cotton. From Blue to Green.® is a national denim drive that takes your donated jeans and converts them into UltraTouch Denim Insulation,  a sustainable insulation material made almost entirely of natural denim and cotton fibers that are 100% recyclable, reducing landfill waste. The denim and cotton are also 90% post-consumer.

According to The Cotton. From Blue to Green., “[The] denim drive was first created in 2006 as part of Cotton Incorporated’s groundbreaking collegiate mobile marketing initiative Cotton’s Dirty Laundry Tour®. The Cotton. From Blue to Green.® denim drive served as a grassroots student-run campaign to educate college coeds about the natural, renewable and recyclable attributes of denim. Click here to see how you can get involved!
