WASTE is a brand business specialised in handcrafting quality bags, accessories, and furniture out of advertising banners, created by designers seeking innovation and sustainability. Their mission is to design and build the best products while caring for the environment and their community. They prioritise re-used and recycled material in their designs, and it is part of their research and creative process. They also think a lot about how intelligent our bags can be, and what would happen to them at the end. They recuperate advertising banners, tire inner tubing, seatbelt material and more from the urban landscape; those get cleaned by hand with natural and environmentally-friendly disinfectants and catalogued.
