Shawls and trinkets get new life

Posted: June 23, 2011 in Boutiques

You can find them at most second-hand stores, the colorful shawls and scarves that once delighted someone at Christmas or a birthday. They often end their lives sadly in a big barrel in a second-hand store. Susanne Beskow, the founder of the he Van Deurs label, takes the textile orphans she finds in the Myrorna charity shops and combines them with vintage costume jewelry to make fun purses and bags.

The “up-cycled” vintage bags can be found at the Van Deur shop in Stockholm, at Snickarbacken 7.
