MADE OF TRUCKS AND PET BOTTLES
There’s something truck tarp bags have never managed to be so far: soft, light and flexible. So, we went out in search of a solution that would appreciate the qualities of our main material but permit new features.
The idea of combining tarps with technical materials had occupied us for some time. In the past we’d only used materials made from 100% recycled PET for linings. But now we’ve decided to connect it up with truck tarp in our bags, also on the outside.
FROM TRUCK AND PET TILL BAG
A pivotal and time-consuming part of the project was the search for materials that would complement our individual truck tarps harmoniously while upholding our principles of upcycling and functionality. After a lot of research and a whole raft of tests we found our material:
A PFC-free fabric from one of our partners made from 100% recycled PET.The yarn is dyed during the spinning process using the so-called spinneret technique, which requires far less water, chemicals and energy than the conventional piece-dyeing method.
Intensive rounds of real-life testing and feedback from urban individuals drove the development of individual models and their functions.
The result is new bags that reinvent sport, spontaneous shopping trips, strolling through the city and other situations that stamp everyday urban life while remaining focused on our most important identifying characteristic – their uniqueness.
