Sandra Guerreiro was born in Lisbon, where she still lives. Graduated in Fashion Design, she soon started to do what she really loves, reusing materials to other purposes, instead of designing clothes…
Starting with recycled paper, cardboard and other materials, ended up reusing plastic bags to create new bags, wallets, lamps, laptop cases and much more… Sandra’s Myspace
Plastic bags were chosen just because they ‘’grow up’’ like mushrooms in our kitchens… everybody knows, and Sandra really had the feeling to do something with that !! Such a waste of material… But it wasn’t easy: the very first experience didn’t go very well…
Sandra took one month to grab it again and finally she created something attractive, useful and satisfactory: a small purse. The feedback was fantastic!She just had to think about how to improve a few things.
I bought this beautiful wallet (13 euro). You can also find Sandra’s work at ‘Ladra Alternativa’ (Alternative Fair), where very creative Portuguese designers show their work like jewellery, arts and fashion accessories.
You can see all models and sizes in Sandra’s album ‘’WORK’’ at Facebook…
