● Adjustable shoulder strap made of car belt (up to approx. 150 cm)

Handy bag for daily use 
The Brussels looks compact but is surprisingly spacious. The inside is fully lined and is equipped with a zip pocket and a pocket. 
The shoulder strap of the car belt can be adjusted to a maximum length of about 150 centimetres. 

The Brussels bag is guaranteed to be sustainable. All the material used for this bag has been recycled. The outside is made of truck tarpaulin, so you can clearly see that it has been used before. This gives these bags their unique look & feel.

The inside is fully lined with airbag fabric or other strong recycled (residual) fabrics, super strong and easy to clean. And then there's the strong and adjustable shoulder strap made of recycled car seat belt.
So 100% recycling. Well, a little less than that, because the zippers are new. We love it. 

Brand: MoreThanHip-truck-tarpaulin

From truck tarpaulin to bag: 100% sustainable & recycling

This MoreThanHip collection is made from used truck tarpaulin, which are discarded after many years of service on the road. These tarpaulin sails are usually too good for the landfill or incinerator and are ideal for a second life as a designer bag.

Sturdy and unique
You can often clearly see that the tarpaulin has been used and that gives the bags its sturdy look. Because the bags are made from recycled truck tarpaulin, none of these bags is exactly the same.

When designing the bags of truck tarpaulins, both the robustness of the construction, the ease of use and an attractive appearance stand central. For example, there is a lot of attention for the use of colour: the application of both visual features and colour accents.

Upcycling in optima forma
For this collection we work together with a studio where discarded sails are transformed into new bags. This is mainly traditional handicraft.

First the material is cleaned. Followed by the selection of the pieces that are most fun on the front of the bag. The next step is to cut the banners to size using patterns. Ultimately the bag itself is put together.

Other recycled materials are also used in these bags. For instance, the shoulder straps are used seat belts. In some models, bicycle inner tubes are also used to strip edges and air bags for the lining of bags.

Splashproof and wear-resistant
In addition to the rugged appearance, truck tarpaulin is also very practical material. It is waterproof, so that the bags can’t be soaked with rain or splashing water. And it is very strong and not very sensitive to wear. So you have a long time to enjoy.
