Designer Sarah Cihat has developed a way to reincarnate tacky old plates into funky designs that scream cool. She describes that, "Each piece represents a rejection of more brand new products filling shelves and storage closets. Rehabilitated Dishware is a subtle statement of the importance of recycling and the renewed value of unwanted things."

She creates the plates using stencils with several motifs that reflect her style. These include images of rockers, pin-up girls, skull and cross bones, and animals.

Sarah also pushes the authenticity of artistry by producing all the plates herself in her Brooklyn based studio.
