About the project

Warshé is a place where business & design meet to share a new perspective of dealing with waste while empowering youth. Our aim is to have a Warshé in people’s lives. Collect, Create, Contribute.
We are a social enterprise that collects unwanted household items*. These unwanted items come from people's homes or companies. You simply hand over your unwanted household items* instead of throwing them away. We then restore and recreate them into new items with a splash of art that can be placed as furniture or useful accessories around the house or office, therefore managing waste.
During the whole art creation process we invite people with a background in art to help out in creating these items with free up-cycling workshops to develop their talent.
Once these items are finished they are sold individually upon request and sold at a quarterly exhibition to ensure the sustainability of our positive impact in society.
"Every item counts, someone’s junk may be another’s treasure."
