I have been speaking with Hidde and Lo the ‘adventurers’ behind The Upcycle in the Netherlands, they are lovely people ; friendly, welcoming and professional to the very end. Hidde and Lo started the business with the realisation that in their native Netherlands there are more bikes then people (yes that is a real fact!) and that every year approximately 40,000 of these bikes are sent to the scrap heap when SO much more could be done with them.
These lights are Popsicle Interiors favourite piece that Upcycle sell under the heading ‘Family Products’ along with rubber tyre belts, bike chain bracelets, business card holders made from tyres and saddles and a foot stool made from inner tubes… Genius!
We are hoping to stock The Upcycles products in the very near future but until then visit their online shop to get your hands on their goods.
