The North Face has tapped British designer Christopher Raeburn for a new series of collaborative bags made from recycled tents, making it The North Face’s first sustainable collection.
The three bags — a drawstring pack, a tote bag, and an IKEA-style carry bag — arrive in yellow and black with “REDUCED REUSED RECYCLED RÆBURN” text running along the straps. Each bag is made using different tent parts, making every item unique.
Raeburn, who made sustainable design a pillar of his brand long before it was a trendy buzzword, says the following about the collaboration: “The North Face has been inspiring a global movement of exploration and conservation for over 50 years. At RÆBURN, we’re motivated to work with brands, other designers, and individuals to drive positive change in our industry, and it’s been fantastic to work alongside the talented team at The North Face to bring this project to fruition.”
The North Face design director Darren Shooter adds, “By reusing the products that we already have, we can limit the need to create further single-use materials and reduce our man-made waste.”
