Practical and sturdy
Because the material it is made of was first used for cement bags, this toiletry bag can take a lot. The material also makes it splashproof.
It also fits a lot and is easy to clean. The Yindee is fully lined with an extra layer of cement bag, in which a large zip pocket has been placed. In short, a practical and very sturdy toiletry bag.
Fade through use
The prints may fade due to intensive use. This is due to the fact that the material is printed with another purpose, namely to be used for cement bags. This means that they are not super wear-resistant. However, this does give the bags their charm.
Fair made in Cambodia
The bags and accessories are made by an independent family business in rural Cambodia, where there is little employment. Their aim is to provide disadvantaged people with permanent employment and a good salary according to local conditions.
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.
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.
