Welcome to Tufu Design
At Tufu Design, instead of relying on new materials, we avoid creating further environmental issues like pollution or landfill by repurposing pre-loved denim.

In a world of overconsumption, our mindset is to focus on the positive impact we can make environmentally, and the simple appreciation of “pre-lived is pre-loved”. Just like your comfy track pants or your trusted old runners, we can re-cycle old favourites into new favourites.

Tufu, from Samoan 'toe fou' meaning ‘new again’ upcycles vintage blue denim jeans (100% cotton) and transforms them into high quality, unique accessories and homewares.

Each piece is a one-of-a-kind handmade work of art finished with genuine leather handles and straps, solid antique brass hardware and artisanal trims and tassels.

The carefully selected second-hand denim is sourced through local charity centers, opportunity shops and donations. All jeans are deconstructed after being chosen for their ‘pre-loved’ wear and tear marks, patina and texture and expertly assembled into new works of art.

Colorful paisley prints made from 100% cotton are used for the inner-lining, creating a delightful detail with each piece. Paisley patterns represent the Cypress Tree, which, in Zoroastrian theology, is a symbol of life and eternity.

Old denim, new again.
