Paguro offers a collection of contemporary upcycled fashion and home accessories, ethically produced from recycled and re-purposed materials.
Yen had always been interested in fashion but had become disillusioned with what she saw on the high street. Copious chain stores offering fast fashion and a throwaway culture to match. She longed for a high street which shared her passion for individuality, quality and sustainability. By chance, Yen came across a designer whilst travelling in South East Asia, whose mission was to create ethical bags and accessories using repurposed and recycled materials.
What made these products so special to Yen was the imaginative way in which the materials had been reinvented and the positive impact that their creation was having on the local community. Excited by their creativity, her passion was rekindled.
