Canadian startup is transforming millions of used, discarded chopsticks into home decor and furniture
Canadian startup ChopValue has embodied the saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” by turning old, used chopsticks into furniture and home decor.
A small start: The idea came to Felix Böck after his partner Thalia Otamendi suggested starting with something as small as chopsticks, according to The Guardian.
An architect couple has started a company that sells cardboard box cat forts that you can freely assemble into anything your fuzzy friend would like. A cat tree? Totally! Kitty castle? Done and done. An entire feline fort? The sky’s the limit!
Meet Kiyomi, a Japanese artist and mother of two who can masterfully create perfect, miniature replica of furniture from the 18th century that goes perfectly well with old Victorian dollhouses.
Being a mother of two can be quite difficult, especially when it comes to time management. But Kiyomi’s case proves even more challenging, considering how intricate her hobby is and how it requires a lot of time to create even one piece of furniture.
