Recycled notebooks handmade by refugees


Refugees and asylum seekers in Greece are desperate to live productive lives and support themselves and their families. Through Oinofyta Wares, previous residents of Oinofyta Refugee Camp are putting their skills as tailors and artisans to use, to create beautiful, handcrafted handbags, purses and notebooks from recycled materials found around the camp. The covers of our upcycled notebooks are made from old doors. Book coverings and bags are made from tent canvas, as well as denim and fabrics from clothing donations and broken camp beds. We have a range of handmade bags, including denim tote bags, ethical shoulder bags, gym bags and clutches.

Upcycled Notebooks

These unique handcrafted notebooks and journals utilise broken plywood doors from Oinofyta Refugee Camp for the hard covers and various upcycled fabrics. The designs are hand machined and you can find the name of your bookmaker written inside the cover.
