This unique "Anything Goes" upcycled zipped bag is made from durable and water resistant lorry curtain siding and is useful for a variety of essentials. It works well for tools, artist's brushes, fishing tackle, as a spacious wash bag - literally “Anything Goes”! It is skilfully hand crafted from off-cuts of light grey and red lorry curtain siding destined for UK landfill, and features a rubber carry handle made from a recycled bicycle inner tube.

Hand made by trained tailors through a fair trade initiative in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world.

Please note that due to the upcycled nature of this product, there will be blemishes and variations
as the recycled materials may show signs of previous use. This is purely cosmetic and does not affect the function and durability of the bag - we call it character!

Measures approximately 13cm wide x 24cm long x 11cm high
FAIR TRADE

Cycle of Good pays above the national living wage and offers full employment rights such as paid holiday and pensions. Regular, reliable employment is essential and very hard to come by in Malawi. With no welfare state, the locals cannot work, and cannot support their families. The Cycle of Good has made lasting positive change for the communities in Chilomoni Township, Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world.

UPCYCLED

Cycle of Good collect used lorry curtains and give them to their tailors who carefully craft useful and beautiful items. They also collect waste inner tubes from cycle shops and cycling clubs throughout the UK and ship them in their own containers to Malawi. All the upcycled inner tube products are vegan friendly and ethically hand crafted in Malawi.
Cycle of Good is a fundraising initiative which is part of a wonderful hub of social enterprises created by registered charity the Krizevac Project. The Krizevac Project is a different kind of charity achieving lasting positive change for some of Africa’s most needy communities in enterprising ways. 100% of all the money made by Cycle of Good helps to fund social enterprise, early years childcare and family support in Chilomoni Township, Malawi which is one of the poorest countries in the world.

All of the Cycle of Good team in Malawi live in Chilomoni where the workshop is situated. They have all completed a two year diploma in tailoring and design, using old sewing machines donated from the UK. Since then, they have completed further training focused on accessories production, offered by international volunteers.
