haute recycled clothing for kids: dolly rocker

I discovered a wonderful French magazine called Milk the other day, Juliette Binoche is the magazines editor. It is geared for kids and has striking ideas and creativity on every page. One magnificent reference sent me in the direction of Dolly Rocker, a German company by Gabi Hartkopp and Ina Langenbruch, who recycle every wonderful piece of fabric they come across. The transformations are whimsical childrens clothing and stuffed animals from a glorious patchwork of colors. Kitschy, unique and environmentally responsible, the Dolly Rocker boutique in Berlin is a hip youngster goldmine.

I love the idea of making new creations out of things like old sweaters, but I have to wonder if I am really doing the nest thing possible with my unwanted clothes items. Wouldn't it be kinder to donate things like sweaters to the needy? Interested to know what others think about this.

Personally, I am of the belief that there are millions of tons of surplus textiles cycling about out there. The best thing for anyone to do is have a good intention. Whether that is donating to your place of choice or of recycling things so that they don't end up in a landfill...hey everyone is doing a good thing.
