Creativeworld Trends 22+: Upcycling

Preview: Creativeworld Trends 22+

The Creativeworld Trends appeal specifically to the active DIY community: existing things are used and embellished to create new things and new materials. Above all, the focus is on handicraft skills, as the title for the 2022/23 season puts it in a nutshell: manual movement. Discover the latest trends in the creative industry here.

Community, personal exchange and conscious consumption have gained enormous importance in the last two years. Urban oases become places of encounter that are creatively designed in community projects. In addition to community, conscious consumption provides for new craft developments.

Recycling and upcycling whether in clothing, textiles, tableware or furniture. Here, handicrafts play an important role: weaving, crochet, embroidery, working with natural materials, weaving and much more show the return to old techniques that we are rediscovering to enhance our found treasures.
