“Your bag is one of the best examples of upcycling and our efforts towards zero waste practices”
Achieving zero waste practices is the ultimate goal for an organization such as dwij that has its foundations on sustainability. Zero waste philosophy indicates that all the raw material that is sourced by dwij is used in some manner. And to remind that although organizations may strive, achieving 100% zero waste targets is not easy at all! It takes many months or maybe years of refining and fine tuning of internal processes in a sustainable, yet operationally and financially feasible manner.
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 frays actually originate from the borders of any post-industrial denim yarn cut outs. Although it may appear that the bag is made from leftovers, the amount of labor and craftsmanship involved in it adds the most value.
This bag takes an overall trapezoidal shape. The bag is secured using a zipper at the top while there are two pockets on the inside to store your essentials. 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 is 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!
