Eliu Hernandez Finds the Potential and Beauty in Used Materials

Eliu Hernandez is a master of upcycled denim creativity, as the Instagram account for his shop @madeorremade makes clear.

As you scroll down his image feed, you quickly notice that not only are the finished pieces true works of art, but the artist has an incredible flair for thinking outside the box of typical denim upcycling.

He even harvests thread from jeans to reuse in future projects! There's an instructional video on his YouTube if you'd like to try it at home). And he publicly brainstorms how to use every last bit of his raw materials, right down to his collection of belt loops. Made or Remade is definitely a shop to follow for inspiration, ideas, and tips on creative upcycling. 

Get comfy and curl up with Episode 38 of Rags to Riches, where Eliu and Crispina get right into the thick of texile alchemy as a business, and finding the unique beauty in the reclaimed raw materials that they both use in their craft.
