Wonderbag Is Made from Recycled Wonderbras

Portuguese designer Rita Almeida has come up with a clever way to reuse old Wonderbras- upcycling them into purses. Although Almeida doesn't explain on her web site how she makes the bags, it seems pretty straight-forward, even DIY worthy. The two cups are sewn together to form the bag itself, and a flap is added to keep it closed. The straps become, well, the strap.

Rummaging through the TreeHugger archives, I was surprised at the number of reuses for old bras we've featured, from containers for growing rice to a rice bowl concept bra.
