Decorative and multifunctional laundry bag made from upcycled cement sacks

There are laundry bags and laundry bags. And the Kamali is a very special laundry bag. If only because it is made of upcycled cement sacks, which is a very strong material. But above all, the Kamali is very decorative because of the print in which an elephant, camel, lion of fish takes centre stage.

So this laundry bag can be seen - gladly even - and is also very decorative for the living room. For example, to store things like toys, newspapers and magazines or even firewood. But also as beach bag or at the camping. What would you use it for?

● Made from recycled cement sacks
● Two layers for extra strength
● Lightweight - approx. 160 g
● Waterproof & durable
● Dimensions: 38 x 48 cm (diameter x height)
● Two strong handles (17 cm high)
● Each bag is unique
● Fair made in Cambodia

Lightweight and strong
The upcycled cement bags are made of woven plastic. As cement bags, they had to be able to carry a lot of weight and withstand a lot of wear and tear. The Kamali is made of two layers of this material, which makes it very strong indeed. Yet, the laundry bag weighs only about 160 grams and can be folded flat. Great for camping or when you don't need it for a while.

The Kamali has two wide handles, so it is easy and comfortable to carry. These are also made of two layers of material and are stitched to the laundry bag in a solid way.

Wear and tear
The prints may fade with intensive use. This is because the material is printed with a different purpose, namely to be used for cement bags. This means that they are not super durable. However, this adds to the charm of these bags made from upcycled material.

Fair made in Cambodia
The bags are made in a social workshop 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. In addition, they have an 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.
