Part of our Day of the Dead collection which looked at the link between mortality and creativity. But to quote the iconic man himself; “I do not have much patience with a thing of beauty that must be explained to be understood.” – Charlie Chaplin

Have you ever considered the impact of a few plastic bags a week, multiplied by a lifetime and then taken everyone else into account who does the same? It adds up to a huge impact, not only on plastic waste, but in manufacturing, energy, and resources.
What a difference a long lasting bag can make. Are you way more likely to use it if it’s got a funky graphic illustration print? Make shopping more fun, and less of an advertisement for whichever shop you're using!
Salvaged from waste cuttings of organic cotton garment production, this waste cotton is re-blended with post-consumer plastic bottles to create a hard wearing and 100% recycled product.
Much of the pollution that would have been created from growing, milling, transporting and processing new cotton is eliminated when recycling.
Also, the use of post-consumer polyester waste avoids any other material being created from yet more raw materials. It’s a win-win situation made out of our wastefulness!
Fair Wear Foundation made for peace of mind in manufacturing. Made with ethical trade and justice for workers. We don't want to make a garment covered in tears, no matter how rebellious our images are!
Illustrated by artists, ethically produced!
