IDÉE MARKET2012 Workshop

IDÉE MARKET is held on the third Sunday of each month at IDÉE SHOP in Jiyugaoka. Under the banner ‘Upcycle Special’,
booths and workshops are held to explore ‘things where close observation leads to new value’.
‘Upcycle’ is a word that has become popular in art and fashion circles and is defined as a sustainable method where ‘as opposed to recycling,
materials are not only re-used as raw materials, but in a way to create an end product of higher / different value than the original’.
