young dutch brand rewrap’s ‘tree bag’ may have what it takes to change how the world thinks of sustainable design. the bag takes a no-compromise approach to style and functionality, and utilizes a unique, all-natural material palette to create a distinctive, sophisticated aesthetic. the ‘tree bag’ is made from fibers extracted from coconut husks. this is a by-product of conventional cultivation, which allows production without the use virgin elements.

fibers are pressed with natural rubber to form a light, sturdy, and naturally waterproof fabric. in its natural state, rubber is fully biodegradable, contrary to its industrial vulcanized variant. ‘tree bag’s’ clasp and handle are composed of durable walnut and everything is sewn with a wood pulp thread. in its entirety, the ‘tree bag’ doesn’t possess a single non-natural or toxic material, and can be safely composted at the end of its long life. rewrap launched the ‘tree bag’ at dutch design week 2015 in eindhoven, the netherlands

  • interesting concept! to be fully eco it would be great to find a local material to sustitute the imported fiber to reduce shipping energy?! what about local grown raw hemp?
