rebagit by piotr stolarski from poland

designer's own words:

An idea for recycling plastic bags; after cutting and hot-pressing there arises a new, durable material with a thickness and stiffness which can be chosen according to the intended use: for producing haberdashery, lampshades, shower curtains etc. The selection and manner of cutting the material decide the color scheme and structure. ReBagIt shopping bags and other accessories reveal their ingredients, which are throwaway bags, to aware people about the problem of waste.
It could be manufactured industrially but the technology is so simple that the project can be hand-made in small series.
