BORBALA is an upcycling fashion collective based in Budapest and Targu-Mures. They create one of a kind, experimental garments, and earrings from post-consumer plastic waste, leftovers, and second-hand clothes. They deconstruct and regenerate second-hand clothes while pushing forward traditional techniques and DIY methods like patchwork, quilting or textile collage. Their aesthetic is spontaneous and colorful always playing around with the concept of old and new, waste and precious, traditional and contemporary. Besides production, they are hosting workshops at festivals and schools to present their recycling methods and to raise awareness of plastic pollution.
