We are pleased to announce our newest collaborative bag line with South Korean non-profit design brand, Eco Party Mearry! Just in time for Earth Day on April 22nd, our line of 100% recycled bags are made of old street banners, leather couches and jackets, and donated clothing. No two bags are alike! They’re super fresh, durable, design-forward, and best of all–good for the Earth! A percentage of the proceeds will go towards environmental efforts and create more jobs abroad.
The series includes three styles:

A lot of love and hard work is put into every bag, and we wanted to show you first hand how these bags are made in Korea.
STEP 1: Gather the material. Street banners are found everywhere in Seoul, from buildings to streets. Instead of trashing the nylon material, volunteers gather the street banners from all over Seoul.
STEP 2: After gathering the discarded materials, they organize them and clean them.
STEP 3: The street banners are taken to the workshop to be cut and sewn into bags by designers.
