British designer Christopher Raeburn has designed some truly unique bags based on The North Face tents.
The designer uses different parts of old tents, as a result of which all finished bags are different from each other. And since they are made of tent fabric (nylon), these bags are very light and durable. The designer presented several models at once, costing from $105 to $175. Consumers can choose between a large and small shoulder bag, as well as a small backpack. At the same time, the weight of a large bag is 290 grams, and a backpack - only 110 grams. Each bag comes with a dedicated storage case.
Due to its unusualness, the first batch of bags was sold out very quickly. And it is not yet clear when the designer plans to introduce the second batch.
Rayburn created the RAEBURN brand in 2001. The main idea underlying the company is to create beautiful and functional new things from old products from well-known manufacturers or rethink existing models. The company motto is Remade, Reduce, Recycled. At the same time, Remade (“update”) means the processing of materials, products and accessories into completely new designs; Reduce ("reduction") - minimization of carbon dioxide emissions and waste, reducing environmental pollution; Recycled ("recycling") - the processing of existing materials into something completely new, the use of environmentally friendly technologies.
RAEBURN has worked with companies such as V&A, Timberland, Clarks and Victorinox in the past. Now it's The North Face's turn. The brand creates clothes and accessories for women and men. These products are becoming more and more popular in the West, but are still almost unknown in our area.
