Sustainable Sundays: Hummingbird Factory

Each Sunday we select one item to feature from over 1,820 sustainable shops on our Upcyclers Etsy Team! Any Upcyclers shop on Etsy that is actively selling, promoting and participating on our team is available for selection.

This week's upcycled selection is...

Recycled Denim Zipper Wallet by Hummingbird Factory

Rust-colored fish is screenprinted on 100% upcycled cotton denim. Fully lined zipper wallet has recycled blue and white cotton lining, orange zipper and keyring. Wallet is finished with twine and a wood bead for the perfect touch.  "Roomy enough for your cell phone, lipbalm, keys, and debit cards. Helps keep small things organized inside your bigger bag, or works great on its own for strolling on the weekends." HummingbirdFactory
Ashley from Hummingbird Factory, screenprints and sews her awesome creations in Nashville Tennessee. She holds degrees in Fashion Design and Art History, and I am very impressed with her designs.  I almost featured her recycled cotton pillow with a vintage bicycle print! I just loved both!
