KPCOUTURÉ

OUR STORY

KPCouturé is our very own fashion brand. It grew out of our Climate Challenge Funded project in 2017. It's main aim is to diversify the conversations around sustainability through upcycling workshops in the community. Teaching mending and upcycling skills. We also make jewellery and accessories from the plastic waste in the building to raise money that can be reinvested into the Kinning Park Complex.

The process of jewellery making

Some of ways we make jewellery from plastic.

Have you have bought jewellery or accessories from us? Select its colour palette below to find out what plastic products make up your recycled purchase. Please share the story of how it was made with friends, family and on social media! 

We want to keep turning single use plastic into accessories until it's no longer available.

We have been able to provide opportunities for young designers to work with us and learn the process of repurposing plastic into beautiful jewellery. 

 

Currently KPCouturé is run on a voluntary basis without funding but we are looking at the next steps to take. We still welcome interest to partner on workshops and events so please get in touch if you'd like to work with us.
