Trash Turn Into Beautiful Jewellery

The Daasanach tribe from Ethiopia’s Omo Valley has found a creative  and eco-friendly way to use garbage. They make astonishingly beautiful head-ware from scavenged bottle-caps, broken watches, and bits of silvery mesh.

A french photographer Eric Lafforgue, who has spent several years exploring the customs of this tribe, provides us with some amazing shots of these people showing their hand-made accessories. They refuse to sell them because they’ve become an inseparable part of their identities.
