ALBAWABA - Its trending on social media. Old shoes are given new lease of life in Tunisia through local artists. Tunisians can now wear them in different patterns, styles and glowing colors.

Innovative ideas that are trending but this is the brainchild of Cherif Zaroui who started his own Kenenti  workshop two years ago in la Goulette, east of Tunis. He says the aim is to allow artists to restore, repair and customize old shoes in an innovative and eco-friendly way.

He says that three to four million shoes are thrown out every year and that's why he and his friend came up with this innovative idea. News about his workshop and ideas was first picked up by AFP.

This is certainly a story to be seen what can be done with old shoes and contribute to the environment.
