making stuff out of old other stuff | T H R A S H I O N
Thrashion, is the first skateboard recycling company in the UK.
They make some pretty cool stuff out of old other stuff, some really high end cool stuff, in fact, they've just started using silver in some of their pieces too.
I came across their unique and colourful pieces on twitter and wanted to ask founder Nat, how it all began...
"I started Thrashion
from scratch, with nothing but a drill in 2007 and the business has grown organically into what it is today.
I am supported by some the UK's skateboard companies and work hard to actively promote a more environmentally sustainable skateboarding industry here in the UK.
My products are all handmade by me in my little garden studio in Cornwall, using traditional woodworking techniques. I have recently moved into silver and now offer a range of high end silver and recycled skateboard inlaid pieces.
I get most excited about the design stage and am at my best designing new pieces, and trying to stay ahead of the growing market by creating new, innovative pieces. I also work seasonally as I get bored quickly and have to keep designing new things for my own sanity! "
