This pencil case is made from an old sail, is easy to clean, and fits perfectly into your handbag or backpack. The sails come from the Zurich region, and receive a new life through upcycling.
Story behind the Product:
We collect old sails from the Zurich area, that can no longer be used for sailing. The products are cut and sewn at our atelier in Zurich, by sewers who come from a refugee background. Through our programs, refugees have the chance to gain experience in the Swiss work environment. Read more about our refugee projects here.
Old sails are collected in the Zurich area. The zippers are made by an Italian company that adheres to high environmental standards, and also includes a social employment project.
Colour: white, but every sail pouch is an individual piece, and therefore there might be differences in the details. The sails are washed before production, but might have irregularities or small stains.
Size: 26 x 9 x 6 cm
