If there is a downside to upcycling, I haven’t found it yet. In fact, I can’t think of anything about upcycling that isn’t a good thing: It’s resourceful, eco-friendly and responsible.

I love linen and I love denim. And I love vintage textiles. I can’t think of any reason why these two (or three) things should not be joined together.
