UPCYCLED

Upcycling is the innovative process of taking discarded everyday materials and using them to create something with a new purpose. These cufflinks have been skilfully upcycled from salvaged, abandoned bicycle chains sourced from bicycle repair shops around Nottingham. The originality of materials used adds to the individuality and uniqueness of each item as no two products will ever be the same.

About the Brand
Paguro founder Yen had always been interested in fashion but had become disillusioned with what she saw on the high street - chain stores offering fast fashion and a throwaway culture to match. Yen longed for a high street which shared her passion for individuality, quality and sustainability.

Whilst travelling in South East Asia some time later, Yen by chance came across a designer whose mission was to create ethical bags and accessories using repurposed and recycled materials. Yen was impressed with the imaginative way in which the materials had been reinvented and the positive impact that their creation was having on the local community. Excited by their creativity, her passion was rekindled.

Scouring the globe looking for designers, each with their own mission and creative story, Yen made it her aim to share their brilliant products - showcasing the quality of their craftsmanship and the individuality of their designs. She decided to create a platform to tell their stories and support their visions and show the world what can be achieved with reclaimed and repurposed materials. Then Paguro was born!

Paguro is the Latin name for hermit crab, which Jen sees as a creature of inspiration. A hermit crab finds an empty shell, takes it and carries it around for protection. So by using a natural product and putting it to good use, a Paguro is nature’s own upcycle!
