Thank you, Ms Minjeong, for appreciating our effort to empower by upcycling.
In support of WRI Indonesia’s sustainability initiatives.
WRI Indonesia had invited us to share our aesthetic upcycling journey during their November’s staff meeting, especially to discuss the process of upcycling post-event banners. We discussed storage, how to differentiate different quality and how to use them for different application.
We use banners in the construction of many of our bags. When used as inner linings, they add form and structure to our products. We also do not shy away from using banners on the bags’ exteriors, inventively mixing them with other fabrics and applying different techniques to vary texture.
With a stock of sackcloths that used to contain peanuts, we decided to get creative. We took advantage of the strength of this material to create heavy-duty bags. We have tastefully incorporated stamps, scribbles, and logos from the original sackcloths to retain their authenticity.
This nifty, lightweight, prism-shaped bags can carry everyday essentials: your wallet, mobile phones, keys, and other trinkets. We have also constructed them such that they can be stored flat when unzipped, making them convenient to pack for travels.
