A lot of space
The Hamburg has a tough design with lots of space. Everything you use every day fits in. This makes this strong backpack ideal as a workbag. But also for a day out, this bag offers more than enough space.

On the inside of the bag you will find a zipper pocket, useful for your wallet and keys, for example. The car seat belt straps can be adjusted to a maximum length of approximately 85 centimeters.

On the back you will also find a loop to hang the bag or carry in your hand.


With the Hamburg you are guaranteed to be sustainable. All the material used for this bag is recycled. The exterior is made of truck tarpaulin which you can clearly see that it has been used before. That gives these bags their unique look & feel.

The strong and adjustable straps are made from car seat belts. 100% recycling. Well, slightly less than, because the slutings 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.
