General Description:

Social Fabric’s convertible sail backpacks are made from old sails, and can be used either as a shopper or backpack. The sails come from the Zurich region, and are given a new life in our products. The backpack is water resistant, and the straps are adjustable in length. There is a little clip on the inside of backpack, to attach your keys.

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.

Material:

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.

Further Information:

Colour: white, but every convertible sail backpack 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.
