We are pleased to introduce a new element to our up-cycling, in the form of fashion accessories that not only look great but are unique and good for the planet too.
Great gifts for a friend or loved one….not to mention a treat for that person looking for something that is truly unique and a ‘one off’'. Each of the items is made from recycling jackets, shirts, t-shirts and reclaimed seatbelts. Because they are unique, there’s one for everyone – whether it’s the pinstripe version perfect for the office, the classic tweed for the hipster, or the lightweight casual version, choosing just one could be a problem!
Up-Cycled Jacket Bag
We think of recycling and up-cycling as a relatively new idea, but post war Europe had little choice than to ‘make-do and mend’. The de-mob suit was often unfashionable and dated, as a result they were first items to be discarded and used to patch up other items of clothing. While we do not use de-mob suits, we are using a mixture of old suits and tweeds to produce something very different. Each bag is made from a vintage jacket (not mass produced) and uses reclaimed seat-belts or securing strap as the shoulder strap - No two bags are the same. This is something quite different.
As with all our items these bags are made by us at our studio in Canada
