Convert Art – The art of upcycling

It was a couple of years ago when I first met Marina. She came to our family cafe and we had a small exhibition with her creations. Marina was (and still is) into upcycling old tyres (among other things) into unique, one-of-a-kind artifacts! Handbags, wallets, cufflings, you name it! 

Fast forward to today, Marina owns the first and only startup in Greece that works with upcycling with a patented processing method! Recently, I was happy to find out that she now has her own showroom, right in the centre of Athens, and so I decided to let you know about her amazing work, too! 

Personally, having bought some of her stuff for gifts, a believe that her crown jewel are the bags she makes. But please, don’t take my word for it, go and see for yourselves, or if you spend all your time in Athens elsewhere, don’t worry, you can still shop online from her e-shop. 

If you’re looking for a unique souvenir, 100% Greek and hand-made, please stop at Marina’s shop, Convert Art, and become the owner of one of her creations! On top of that, the area where Marina has her showroom is one of the must-be areas in Athens if you want to do some shopping while you’re sightseeing.
