What if you turned your passion into a profession? Here is the beautiful example of Mohamed Khattou, a 30-year-old Moroccan, who is today at the head of a company of creation of original furniture baptized Upcyclemo. It all started in 2012 while working as an assistant for an interior designer. Interest in decoration is felt but forced to leave his post for family reasons, he remains 5 months unemployed. One day, when he moves his garage with his brother, he comes across scooter and car tires that he decides to recycle using them to put on ... a table ! Without knowing,his project was born.

His company Upcyclemo(mix between "Upcycling" and "Mohamed") today makes all kinds of furniture with tires: tables, of the chairs, of the furniture, but also decorations like mirrors, of the boxes, of the frames,... Used tires, it offers pickers paid to the task to deliver them. Then, with his teams, he washed them with detergent to rid them of the smell, of the fats and others impurities before exploiting them to make all kinds of decorative objects.
