Upcycled Materials
The set of all three hangers.

A set of coat hangers created from parts of a bike. A constructive and unique way to hang up your clothes. And you can make them all yourself.

If it was to go into production the hangers would be made from the whole of the bike, utilizing all the parts possible. For this set, 3 have been made. One from part of the wheel, one from the handlebars and the third from the main frame. The metal from the wheel and frame is complimented with wood finishing.

Individual products in the range:

I like the blue lines on your hangers~ nice color match~~
It's quite clever that you chose those parts from the bike to make hangers~
~ Are the shapes suitable to hang clothes?
