Festival Jackets and Bags Made From Upcycled Tents
Every summer, thousands of tents are left behind by revellers after the music festivals that not only create a mess for festival organisers but a huge burden for landfills. A UK based start-up company WiTHiNTENT upcycles the fabric from those abandoned tents to create rain-proof clothing and accessories for the festival market.
“A range of hoodies, ponchos, pac-a-macs and bags are now available from WiTHiNTENT. With a focus on the rain-protection needs of festival-goers, items are sold via stalls at the festivals themselves as well as weekly at Spitalfields Traders Market in London. Pricing ranges from £10 for a WiTHiNTENT bag to £55 for a zip-pocket jacket,” says Springwise.
In an earlier post, we told you about an upcycled origami dress made from a thousand newspaper cranes but these jackets and bags made from upcycled tents are not just a decorative piece but useful too.
