The Patio Recycled bags are a sustainable fashion project by Kids at The Patio, a unique line of handmade bags for kids made of discarded plastic bottles in collaboration with craftsmen and women on the island of Bali.
Indonesia faces a mounting plastic pollution crisis and urgent action is needed to turn the tide of plastic waste and pollution. Kids at the Patio takes their part and stands up with the social responsibility of recycling, reusing and upcycling.
The manufacturing process consists of making use of discarded plastic bottles, by shredding them into plastic flakes and transforming them into a strapping band. The next step in the process is to hand-weave the bags individually by skilled craftsmen and women artisans using traditional handcraft techniques in remote villages in Bali.
