More Plarn, Please!
You know I love to find craftspeople who use recycled materials in their work. My latest etsy purchase, this beautiful coiled basket from bagsagain, is made from plarn, ie yarn made from strips of discarded plastic shopping bags. Talk about turning an environmental scourge into something beautiful and useful! By the way, I chose a basket made of relatively simple colors (black and grey), to go with my kitchen decor but Brijana makes her baskets, coasters and vases in bright colors as well. She also accepts custom orders and her work is very reasonably priced!
