Helvetica’s Big Travel Bag via Upcyclette

Made from 100% virgin wool recycled from vintage Swiss army blankets which were stockpiled for anywhere between 40 and 100 years, but actually never used. Every bag is unique and individual bags vary slightly in colour. In side there’s a large cotton fabric lined compartment, with one inner pocket.

This travel bag measures 63cm x 35cm x 24cm. Check the website for more sizes and designs.  Made in Switzerland.

Upcyclette sources beautifully crafted, cleverly designed and sustainably and ethically manufactured products from around the world. Every piece is made from upcycled material – be it vintage Swiss army blankets, retired German fire hoses, airlines’ discharged life vests or castoff ringbinders. In short, they love awesome things from humble origins.
