Ecouterre shows off 7 unexpected ways to recycle old denim jeans in a stunning photo gallery. Two of my favorites are pictured here. Above are denim Converse sneakers made by an Australian jean company. I love how they show off belt loops, pockets, frayed edges and more. You can recreate this look with our All Star Fabric Swap tutorial from CRAFT: 07.
I am also loving these worn out jean cubes by Noyes in Japan shown below. Just give them three pairs of your worn out jeans and they turn them into a stylish ottoman. You can also watch the step-by-step video of the process so you can DIY it yourself!
