To say upcycling is a craze is maybe not true. It’s really popular, which is great, but the only reason for it not being quite a craze is that most upcycling goes completely unnoticed. And in a way that’s the beauty of it – that something new can be made out of something old and manage to do its new job so well that you might not even think twice about it having been upcycled. To be honest, upcycling is something that I’ve only really started to notice recently. It’s kind of like the small crack in your car windscreen, or a ticking clock when you’re trying to sleep, or that really annoying way your partner slurps the milk off the spoon after finishing all the cereal out the bowl. Once you’ve noticed it for the first time it’s impossible to stop noticing it every time it happens.
