Upcycling since 1985-ish
We’re here to make it happen. To prove that upcycling works. That we can have it both ways: make fashion items that look god damn cool while working with used materials and fabric only.
Deconstruct / Reconstruct
Ostra Berdo is a family affair that my mom started '85. A few years ago I joined the project and reshaped it. All you see here is literally hand-made by my mom in a small workshop in Transylvania.
In short, the process is like this: From local flea markets and SH shops we buy different items that are still in good shape and can be upcycled. We’re talking carpets, leather jackets, leather pants. We then deconstruct them piece by piece and use the materials and fabric to make new cool items.
