Spacious waterproof beauty case made of recycled cement sacks

This handy, practical and waterproof beauty case is a must for your holiday or night out. It is spacious and convenient because the flap can be fully unzipped.  The large handle on the top makes it easy to carry around. Easy to clean and very sturdy thanks to the special material it is made of: recycled cement bags.

Also very nice: each one is unique. Therefore the toiletry bag you receive can differ slightly from the picture. However, the elephant, camel or tiger is always prominently displayed on the top.

● Made from recycled cement sacks
● Strong & lightweight: approx 215 grams
● Splash proof and durable
● Lined with black dirt-resistant fabric and with zip pocket in the flap
● Dimensions: approx. 30 x 20 x 14 cm
● Easy to clean and store flat
● Closes with a solid zip
● Each bag is unique

Practical and robust
Because the material it is made of was first used for cement bags, this toiletry/beauty case can take a beating. The material also makes it splashproof and easy to clean.

The Jati is fully lined with a black, dirt-resistant fabric, with a zip pocket in the flap. In short, a practical and very sturdy toiletry bag.

Fading through use
The prints may fade somewhat due to intensive use. This is because the material is printed for a different purpose, namely one-time use as cement bags. This means that the print is not super durable. But this adds to the charm of these articles.

Fair made in Cambodia
The bags are made in a social workplace in the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Phen. Here mainly disabled craftsmen work. In this way they strive to improve the living standards of people with disabilities. They also have the admirable mission to make Cambodia cleaner by using recycled materials in their creations.


Brand: MoreThanHip-cementbags

Bags and accessories made from recycled cement bags

The MoreThanHip Cement bags collection is made in Cambodia. The cement bags and the cement that was used in them originally come from Thailand. Cambodia imports a lot of building materials from Thailand, for the reconstruction of the country after the devastating years of oppression by the Khmer Rouge.

Fairly produced
These discarded cement bags have been discovered by local craftsmen as a material for making bags of all kinds, toilet bags and pencil cases. MoreThanHip's cement bag collection is made in a social workshop in the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Phen. Here, mainly disabled craftsmen work. In this way, the workshop strives to give people with disabilities a dignified place in society and to improve their standard of living.

Cleaning up the environment
The workshop also has the admirable mission of making Cambodia cleaner by using recycled materials in their creations. After all, litter is a big problem in countries like Cambodia and one of the causes of the plastic soup in the oceans.

Strong, light and waterproof
The material - woven plastic with a coating - from which the cement bag items are made was initially developed for cement bags. That means it has to be very strong, as a full bag of cement weighs 50 Kg. At the same time, it is very light, which contributes to the carrying comfort of a bag made of this material. The coating also makes it waterproof, which is of course a very nice feature for a bag.

Original and unique
Cement bags from different brands have been used for our collection, each with their own design. For example, we have articles with an elephant, a camel and an eagle. That alone makes for an original look. Moreover, no two items of a model are exactly the same, because different parts of a cement bag are used each time. This way you can be sure of a unique item.
