Solid construction and luxurious finish
These panniers have a very solid construction and are luxuriously finished with contrasting piping and reflectors on the back and sides. They have waterproof zips, over which the flaps fall for the most part. The flaps are fastened again with a click buckle.
Inside, the bags are lined with recycled airbags. Each bag has a large insert pocket and a large zip pocket. The Rotterdam is easy to attach to your carrier with Velcro. If you take it off, you can easily take it with you by the handle on top of the bag.
With the Rotterdam you are 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. That gives these bags their unique look & feel. The inside is fully lined with airbag fabric, super strong and easy to clean. So 100% recycling. Well, a little less then, because the velcro, the buckles and the zips are new.
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.
