Around the World - Switzerland - Umbu

I love it when I find unique shops with a great niche, and Umbu is definitely one of them! Unique lampshades made from upcycled materials, such as old maps, old magazines, old music sheets and even old sewing patterns! Giving new life to old and otherwise junk materials, this type of creative innovation is something I really love about handmade. :) Aside from lampshades, Umbu creates word magnets as well. Too cute!
