Project #1

This hybrid tote / rucksack is made out of offcuts and end of rolls from luxury menswear production. These materials, by-products of the production process were bound for incineration or landfill.

We carefully salvaged the offcuts by hand from factories in East London. They were then meticulously sorted, cut and crafted one by one.

The leather for the trims and labels was rescued from leather factory waste bins. The handles were cut from offcuts we purchased that were left over from accessory and shoe production.

All of the leather trims were prepared and finished by hand.

Each bag features a hand stamped and hand numbered offcut rescue label.

Making is done locally near our studio in London

To give the bag structure we have fused it internally with interfacing. This fusing is a patchwork of pieces prepared by hand from interfacing offcuts that were also destined for incineration. Yep, we are serious.
