PLNGNS is a young Ukrainian brand founded in 2021. Its specialty is the complex work of recycling old shoes, which are taken apart and new objects are created. PLNGNS compares the process of making such shoes and clothing to painting on a canvas: when elements are added as you go, the design can evolve along the way. "Old sneakers do not need to be burned as garbage," PLNGNS adds and demonstrates by its own example that there is another way out.
