From advertising to bag: 100% sustainable & recycling
Nowadays, the use of advertising banners is a popular and affordable way to promote your company. Just look around you: you can see them along motorways, at cinemas and office buildings, during fairs and conferences.
After a while, however, they are not current anymore and the residual material is in fact useless. How nice is it then to process these billboards into bags or other accessories
Upcycling in optima forma
MoreThanHip works together with a studio where end-of-life banners and billboards are transformed into new bags. This is mainly traditional handicraft.
The banners are cleaned first. Then follow 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. Only then will the bag itself be put together.
Colourful and unique
Because the bags are made from recycled advertising banners, none of these bags is exactly the same. The models of course are the same, but the colours and prints are always unique. Say for yourself, how nice is a bag that really does not have anyone else
Wear during use
With intensive use, the prints can fade and wear at the corners. The material is originally printed to serve as an advertising banner and that does not have to be very durable. In use, your bag will get a nice vintage effect.
