Mansur Gavriel has launched its first ever upcycled capsule, a small collection of woven totes in vibrant spring hues. And while the idea behind it isn’t new, nor is the style, the fact that someone is actually doing something about it should be applauded.
To minimise excess for a more sustainable future, the brand has taken extra leather trimmings from its classic vegetable-tanned bags and have turned them into these fun and functional Upcycled Woven Tote bags.
Hand-woven in Italy, the totes feature the same minimalist, modern vibe in colourful leather options that are synonymous with the brand. In a practical size and silhouette, these sustainable totes each measure 35 cm in width by 25 cm in height, with a 13 cm depth.
With a wide opening, the tote is a roomy one that makes for an ideal carry-all for your everyday needs. It can fit a whole lot, including a 14-inch laptop and water bottle, and offers flexibility to move from work to weekend with ease. Plus, its 18 cm strap drop allows for comfortable shoulder carry.
This capsule also brings back some favourite colour combinations with five options in two-toned colour combinations. With choices like Blue Multi, Dolly Multi, Orange Multi, Royal Multi and Sunrise Multi, there’s surely one to suit your mood.
