Upcycled Leather Jackets? – Badass! Olga Road is WA locals who are selling old leather trench coats that are remade to fit our new generation of funk and style. This means you aren’t spending your hard earned money to have animals slaughtered just so you can look cool and be warm – but reusing leather that would get chucked in the dump cause it isn’t hip anymore. This concept of upcycling is more efficient (and touches on that creative nerve we all have) than buying “brand” new, wearing pleather, or trying to recycle the leather to make it into something completely different. This concept and company resonate with WaterDrop WorkShop cause this is what we do – our “coldspot” coffee table and “piper” floor lamp are two obvious pieces on our website that use “upcycled” components. All WaterDrop pieces use locally salvaged or windfallen wood but these folks are taking something old, chopping in some modern changes and putting it back into the same function: keeping bodies comfy with style -Nice one Olga Road!
