DYRT Brand

DYRT has three meanings:

DYRT is pronounced as ‘dirt’ (dûrt) because we design unique products made from trash that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.

DYRT in Norwegian means expensive; to prove that even from dirt you can make something exclusive and give ‘dirt’ an expensive look.

DYRT is a question in the form of an acronym: ‘Do You Recycle Too?’ This is a question to make people think about the contribution they are making to a good cause and the environment by purchasing and using our products.
