FREITAG introduces lightweight accessories made of recycled plastic bottles

FREITAG ventures beyond its trusted truck tarps to launch a series of bags that feature a new material. appropriately called tarp on PET, the zurich manufacturer combines its signature tarpaulin with a textile made from 100% recycled PET bottles. the ToP line makes its debut with a new multipurpose drawstring style, dubbed the CINNAMON, which echoes the brand’s shopping and carrier bags.

the 17 liter CINNAMON gives wearers access to a magnetic pocket, located on the outside, and main compartment with drawstring closure and. like the rest of the line (details on all other pieces to be released imminently), the CINNAMON still possesses the rugged style FREITAG is known for with the continued inclusion of truck tarps. however, the pieces are now softer, lighter, and more flexible thanks to a textile the team has developed by recycling empty PET bottles.

the result is a PFC-free material, colored and cut to create a family of accessories with different purposes. in addition to the multipurpose drawstring bag, there is a top-loading backpack intended for commuters, a roll-top shoulder bag, and a cross-body bag with a concealed truck tarp accent which can also be worn around the hips.

succeeding in their mission to find more ways of promoting sustainable design, the tarp on PET line sees the FREITAG team employ a spin dye method which uses much less water and energy and far fewer chemicals than conventional piece dyeing methods. FREITAG has been designing sustainable products since before it was cool and way before recycled plastic became increasingly popular to work with. since the 1990s they have produced everything from high-end accessories & bags made from recycled vintage truck tarps to compostable clothing

 

stay tuned to find out more details on the rest of the tarp on PET (ToP) line. the CINNAMON bag is currently available in all FREITAG stores, selected resellers, and at freitag.ch.
