Handmade Fabric Designs “To Go” From Deda Designs

Green Prophet

Handmade and packaged in recycled boxes generally used for fast food or take-away, Deda Design’s kitchen products look delicious. Now Deda Designs, a boutique design label based in Israel, is finding ways to use recycled fast food packaging to house its limited edition, handmade fabric products. Fast food usually gets a bad rep: it’s fatty, bad for you, and wastes a lot of packaging and resources. But what if fast food style packaging was put to more sustainable use?

Green gifting

Green (Living) Review

Handmade is best by Michael Smith (Veshengro) When it comes to gifting, whether for a birthday or for Christmas, Chanukah, etc., A handmade knife, a slingshot, or whatever else, was more appreciated by us than if someone had gone out and bought something that we might not have, as I said, been able to make much use of. A homemade handmade gift also shows the recipient that the giver has thought about what the recipient might like, considering his or her hobbies, etc.
