One of (Fast) Fashion’s biggest crimes is the amount of waste it generates in terms of fabric waste that gets discarded in the garment making process. Cloth tends to take a while to decompose, and also results in dye leaking, among other things. Upcyling and using surplus material is a great way to keep harmful substances away from the landfill, which is exactly what Upcycle by Tabi is doing. What are they known to make best? Bags.
Cross body slings, laptop sleeves, totes, and giant shopping friendly bags and everything in between are available in vibrant prints. Their smallest offering are the Sydney Pouches which are small and nifty. Perfect as a super basic bathroom pouch, pencil case, or anything you want really. The actual toiletry kits come in two variants, one as a set of two pouches (single compartment each) and the other as a box with multiple compartments, and a detachable pouch within. The laptop sleeves are nifty as they are gorgeous, and will hold most small to medium sized laptops (16 x 11.5 inches if you must know).
Our favourite offerings are the shoppers. Generous when it comes to space and capacity(24 x 9 x 14 inches), you could actually fit a small child in it (but please don’t!). Perfect whether you’re going for your weekly grocery run, or shopping spree, you won’t need more than one wither way. Feel free to get it right here on LBB.
