Both these new projects have given us an opportunity to innovate and experiment – to be creative with design, fabrics and sustainability.
The Blank Canvas bags are made from just 2 panels of 100% recycled, waterproof polyester – every bag is made from 40 plastic bottles. Each Project is born out of a unique collaboration with people or projects who inspire creativity, action and positive change. So far, we have worked with the Do Lectures and Miscellaneous Adventures on two very different bags, allowing both parties some creative freedom to play with colour, print work and functionality.
The Crafted By collaboration projects are created with makers in the UK, celebrating the heritage, craft and skills that still exist locally. The first two projects use waxed canvas from Halley Stevensons in Dundee, Harris Tweed and veg-tanned bridle leather from Devon – in a foraging bag we developed with The Botanist Gin from Islay and a soon-to-launch, very special rucksack collaboration.
Continuing to innovate, in order to inspire people to connect with the world around them and make sustainable choices where they can, drives us every day.
