The collection is comprised of a drawstring backpack, packable tote bag and a large holdall-style tote bag. Each constructed from recycled tents in an effort to reduce man-made waste, the bags will all feature unique patinas and finished depending on which tent was used. Color, detailing, crinkling and signs of wear will all differ, ultimately making for a responsible and unique collaboration.
The bags are finished with “RÆBURN/RECYCLED” branded straps with words relating to the RÆMADE program. Finally, each features patches and prints celebrating the legendary TNF artwork and logo. Christopher Raeburn said of the collection, “At RÆBURN we’re motivated to work with brands, other designers and individuals to drive positive change in our industry and it’s been fantastic to work alongside the talented team at The North Face.”
The collection marks a pivotal point that the fashion industry is increasingly acknowledging the impacts of wastage, and that products can be made from repurposed items. Check out the bags over on The North Face’s website and at select TNF stores.
