Globe Hope is a 10-year-old Finnish company that designs and manufactures a huge range of upcycled products, from bags made of used advert banners to earrings made from computer keys. There are some fantastic clothes made from deadstock and reclaimed fabrics too, including items made of Swedish Army jackets which date back as far as 1932. Here is a selection of our favourite pieces. Pictured above – Pomppu dress made from Indian patterned textile industry leftovers.
