We have been using the upcycling method since 2008, which is why the pieces made in this way are now a permanent fixture at Printa, this collection named UNIQUE. We like the method so much because it increases value. It is quite simply the rebirth of materials considered waste: we use these textiles to create a completely new garment or accessory using the patchwork technique. A real metamorphosis when an old leather jacket becomes a stylish bag or men's shirts become women's skirts in the Printa workshop. The range of possibilities is endless, so we always come up with something new from time to time. This is an ongoing love project of ours, so we thought we'd introduce our 5 UNIQUE favorites.
You can vary the UNIQUE dress with recycled sleeves according to your taste and outfit: it can be adjusted to your figure both in the front and back. Whatever you choose, it accentuates your waist nicely and gives an extra twist to an otherwise simple dress. 11 different variations are available, so you will definitely find the one that suits you.
There is no other dress from Printa that evokes the cottagecore style so authentically! The UNIQUE Recycled Ruffle Dress cannot be overlooked with its romantic details, loose fit and vibrant lines. You can even wear it with white sneakers, so you don't have to give it up even on busy weekdays.
The quilters of the old pioneer camps certainly did not expect that after tents and wooden houses, they would continue to live in wardrobes. When Zita found the colorful blankets at a place selling antiques in the summer, she couldn't resist them, and the blanket jacket idea was born immediately. This piece will definitely not come across you on the street, as it is produced in limited numbers, no two pieces are the same.
The UNIQUE recycled trapeze blouse is a patchwork combination of navy and dark green shades. These colors create a beautiful, deep color palette. You will love it every day, as you can wear it with anything, and the soft fit of the blouse looks great on all shapes and is extremely comfortable.
From a leather jacket to a bag? Well, the upcycling technique is limitless, which is why we gave a new chance to old but flawless genuine leather jackets: this is how the UNIQUE recycled large leather backpack, which can also be worn as a shoulder bag, was born. We designed it for everyday use, but it is especially durable, so you can take it with you on a hike. We are so sure of this that we offer a lifetime warranty. Available in four shades that differ subtly in style.
