Ideas to give new life to your denim clothes
If you love denim, you might for sure have some clothes that have lost their color or do not fit as well as they did before but you do not dare to throw them away, well we have good news for you as there is no need to get rid of your denim clothes, this time we will give you some cool ideas to give new life to those garments.
“A great advantage of denim is that the garments made of this fabric last for too long, but also this material can be recycled in many different ways, so it contributes to the environment care when it is used for different purposes”, says Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, about this fabric.
Now we will give you some examples you can try to give new life to your denim clothes:
- Accessories – Denim can be recycled to make cute bags, sandals, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, purses and headbands, just add rhinestones or fabric paint and your imagination to have some great accessories to complement your outfit.
- For your house – If you have a couple of jeans and you are thinking on how to recycle them, try to create organizers with it (for your clothes, school supplies, materials, etc.), you can also make a cell holder, pillows, a carpet (if you make it with swatches of different shades, it will look awesome) and placemats (done with the back part of your jeans, so you can put your cookware within the pocket)
- To work – You can also make an apron, a pinafore dress or a smock with a piece of denim.
- You can also turn an old pair of jeans into a new pair of shorts or a skirt, you can even tear off the fabric or add some bleach and you will get new designs with the same garment.
“We need to give a good example to our children, and recycling is a good way of doing it. With a garment made of denim and enough imagination, you can create many new designs that will look as new”, added Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal.
