Would you wear these custom fleece bags?
Cute and creative. Made by the 22-year-old British designer Tega Akinola, these reworked and upcycled Patagonia and The North Face fleece bags are must-have items to collect!
There is an inspiring story behind Akinola with her quirky upcycled designs. It was started by revamping her old clothes simply because she didn’t have money to buy new ones. Not only that, but she also witnessed the trend of people recycling waste products from a fashion perspective which made her more interested and intentional about it.
The clothing industry takes a pretty big toll on the environment. Learning how to repair torn clothes is not only a cost-effective way to keep your wardrobe stocked, but it’s also better for the environment. Upcycling clothes is a way for you to reduce your carbon footprint.
Now, it’s time to summon the creative power of the industry to make it happen!
