“Your bag is one of the best examples of upcycling”


This bag has been designed as a unique looking multipurpose tote that is certain to make you stand out in a crowd! The specialty lies in the zero-waste philosophy of the bag i.e. the patches comprise the leftovers of our manufacturing process. This bag carries a frayed look and shaped in a trapezoidal manner. It features two inner pockets to store your essentials. Although it may appear that the bag is made from leftovers, the amount of labor and craftsmanship involved in it adds the most value.


The bag is upcycled using old jeans and post-industrial denim used in sampling phase of the manufacturing process of jeans. The main compartment of the bag is secured using a magnetic button at the top while there are two pocket on the inside. The bag attains its stiffness due to the presence of another layer of upcycled 100% cotton material with the layering of patchwork. The inner part of the bag gets its fresh look due to the presence of post- industrial lining material.


Owing to the process and design, it is virtually impossible to have two bags that are exactly the same!


To take care of the hygiene requirements, all the material that enters our workshop are industrially washed in a rigorous manner. In addition, our production process also ensures that the bag looks fresh and equivalent to a virgin product.


Ideal usage: Stylish tote for parties, and special occasions where you want your accessories to stand out in a crowd!
