From ocean waste to laptop backpack
A water-resistant backpack made from recycled materials (polyester and polyamide) extracted from plastic waste in the ocean. In its usual thoughtful manner, Ecoalf has designed the lightweight: One of the two main compartments is padded on both sides and protects laptop or tablet. Water-resistant two-way zippers close both compartments. Quick access to small items is provided by the exterior zippered pocket. Two slip pockets with elastic on the sides hold water bottle, gloves and the like. Inside, a zippered pocket and a small slip pocket store keys, phone and wallet. And so that you can carry the backpack even with weighty contents back-friendly, the infinitely adjustable shoulder straps are extra wide, ergonomically shaped and additionally padded. For short distances, the carrying handle of the backpack is ideal. The back part is covered with airy mesh fabric. So you are equally well equipped for office, shopping and leisure.
Ecoalf. Environmentally Compatible, Fashionable, and Fair.
The Spaniard Javier Goyeneche has found a personal way to counter the waste of raw materials in our throwaway society – with creative ideas. In 2012, his label started producing fashion from recycled fibres. Then he initiated the revolutionary Ecoalf Ocean Project: More than 3,000 fishermen along the Spanish coast enlisted to help recover plastic waste from the sea. Goyeneche has the residues transformed into high-quality yarns for clothes, shoes and accessories. A similar project started in Thailand in 2017. Recycling all-natural textile fibres, namely cotton and wool, is another objective on Ecoalfs to-do list. Finally, the label mastered the challenge of finding new uses for old car tyres.
Staining of light-coloured clothing, furniture and other objects is possible.
