Elvang Repurposing
At Elvang, we act responsibly. We invite you to donate Elvang products that you no longer need, and we will contribute with collection samples and possibly excess stock. With Elvang Repurposing, Elvang products are donated to vulnerable women in Peru, who with their unique handicraft skills transform pillows and plaids into new products that they can sell in Peru and thus build a revenue base. Throws and pillows can turn into bags, purses, teddy bears or dolls. Read more at elvangdenmark.com
