Recycled Fashion

Friday, 13 September 2013

So we all know fashion trends are recycled and will be recycled in the future but what about eco-friendly fashion? Would you wear a recycled material dress? What about a festival banner bag?

Bright Colours are a brand who specialise in just those kind of bags. Each bag is scrubbed clean and cut from the most interesting part of the banner fabric to make the bag with the straps made from seatbelts. These items could only be used once and so what else is there to do with them but make something new and I'm surprised at how much I like the tote and messenger bags.

The messenger bags and backpacks are designed with cyclists in mind and while I don't cycle I could definitely see the messenger and tote bags being incorporated into my own style with a plain outfit to make the bag pop. I don't think they'd made me give up my Zara bags entirely but for the gym or lugging lots of things to work on a day where a suit wasn't required I think these would be perfect plus you can rest assured that you're helping the environment while you're at it which is a big plus for me.

As I've mentioned before, I'm not entirely eco-friendly and I don't think I will ever be but when it comes to a choice of evironmentally friendly or not with an equal product - it's a no brainer for me.
