Betty modeling one of our favorite coats!

So we made THE CUTEST Upcycled Umbrella Dog Rain Coat for a Boston Terrier this weekend. I couldn’t resist snapping some photos of my one pug, Betty, in this coat. Very special thanks to one of our biggest supporters, Aaron, for bringing us these fantastic yellow and black polka dot shoe laces back from Nashville, TN! These ties took the coat to the next level and I couldn’t imagine it with out them so THANK YOU! ❤

These are just a preview, to take a look at all of the photos, check out our Flickr Set!

Another Day in the life of Recycling Zychal- Inventory Photoshoot in Hyperspeed

In the second installment of Day in the life of Recycling Zychal, upcycling obsessed designer Taryn Zychal gives you an insider view of the creative process at work. Using a large 7.5′ PVC pole covered in $1 IKEA carpets- a handmade super sized cat scratch post of sorts that she made for her cat Rhoda- some tape and a chair, Taryn mounted her Flip Camera to the top to give an all inclusive aerial view of the inventory photoshoot process.

Recycling Zychal's inventory photoshoot of new broken umbrellas to go on sale next week!

We will be color correcting and putting up the umbrellas that you see in this video over the weekend on our store site, www.recyclingzychal.etsy.com so be sure to check them out! This is one of our greatest batches to date!

Again you will see all 3 pugs in this video and if you watch closely, you will also see an appearance by Rhoda herself.

Set to the music of Digitalism, this video should surely get your creative juices flowing.
