Mamukko is a store in Kinsale, Co. Cork which is run by two Hungarian brothers, Levente & Attila Magyar. Levente and Attila specialise in upcycling, having learned their skills from generations before them. Upcycling is the process of reusing old, tired materials and producing something of higher value, which in the case of Mamukko is beautifully designed and handcrafted bags, as seen below:

The Mamukko duo make bags, such as that in the photo above, which is made out of a retired life-raft. As such, the beautifully restored material is hand-crafted into unique pieces, which are not only of fantastic quality but are also one-of-a-kind. As well as which, upcycled products not only guarantees a product’s individuality, but are also reduces the impact on the environment while being suitably gorgeous.
