A trendy, multi-purpose shoulder bag for your shopping, travel and office needs. The bag is made by upcycling old jeans and post-industrial denim used in the sampling phase of the manufacturing process of jeans. Upcycling discarded but usable materials has a huge positive impact on the environment.
Your bag is completely washable. Please use cold water and drip dry. A quick round of ironing can give it a brand new appearance.
As with all upcycled products, the colours are dependent on the available material. So your bag may differ slightly from what is shown here, but the design and overall colour will always be the same!
One pair of jeans takes anywhere from 5,000-10,000 litres of water to make. This includes the water it takes to grow the cotton, plus the water used in dyeing and fading, which also leads to a lot of runoff of chemicals. Let’s not forget the land, labour and energy that went into growing the cotton.
And yet billions of these garments are simply thrown away each year because they are old, torn, or just “out of fashion.” That’s right, millions of kilos of perfectly usable material is sitting in landfills right now, rotting away. By choosing to use upcycled products, you support the upcycling movement, and reduce the amount of useful fabrics sent to the landfill.
