Rephilosophy made me rethink my philosophy on upcycling. I've seen a few articles about how to upcycle items, and while I thought the ingenuity was cool, it was usually restricted to a couple one-off things like re-purposing an old sweater. The creator of Rephilosphy, Paola, who lives in Italy has made upcycling and recycling her theme. And she's turned her theme into something uniquely her own. If you take a look at her shop you'll find she has a really great aesthetic with something like making her own envelopes and the end result looks so crisp, like something you'd buy in a store.
