This eco-friendly and unique woven wallpaper by Weitzner Limited called Newsworthy is a great addition to your office decor. Made by hand-weaving recycled newspaper strips with a loom and backing it on paper, this wallpaper is colorful and environmentally-friendly.

The one-of-a-kind woven wallpaper is funky and clean; you can even vacuum it! The producers, Weitzner Limited, do not guarantee the woven paper from sun fading, but it sure is unique.

Implications - Corporations are now upcycling old products in order to satiate consumer desire to reduce unnecessary waste. Though not too many practical items have been crafted with upcycled textiles, the allure of using old materials to create something new is enough to whet consumers' appetites for re-purposed waste.
