MAIUM introduce a collection of up-cycled rainwear produced from recycled plastic. All garments are made from post-consumer Maium raincoats and redesigned and assembled in the Netherlands by Garcia Bello.
Recycling processes consist of either or both of the following opposite cycles. Upcycling, known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste products, useless or unwanted products into new materials or products perceived to be of greater quality.
Traditional process flows of product life cycles, consider post-consumer products or materials as pure waste. Unobserving, or for simplicity’s sake just neglecting the fact that these products potentially still have real value.
