Always on the lookout for great repurposing ideas, World’s Biggest Garage Sale latest products involve textiles, leading to some amazing upcycled canvas creations!
It’s no secret that textile waste is a huge issue – in Australia alone, 6,000 KG of clothes are thrown out every 10 minutes, going straight to landfill.
So, when recently we received a large amount of high-end canvas garment bags through our retail resource recovery program, we got to work quickly thinking of ways to repurpose them!
We took it to our creative team….. and here’s just a sample of the incredible high quality and gorgeous products we’ve made.
Multi-use Storage Pots
These beautiful multipurpose reversible storage bags can be used for storing pegs, fruit bags, plant pots, stationery holders, cosmetic bags, clothes storage… the ideas are endless. We not only used canvas from the garment bags, but also material offcuts from reupholstered chairs to make them pop with colour!
These spectacular cushions have been made with a canvas back from the garment bags and leftover patterned material, making them durable and perfect for indoor or outdoor use. If you want a particular colour to make your living area, why not place a custom order for some of your own with the fabric you love!
Canvas beach bags

Looking for a new clutch without hurting the planet or breaking the bank? We were able to use these canvas bags as inserts for the clutches, combined with multiple off-cuts for the colour designs.
