On February 7th & 8th, 9 teams of leading fashion, fabric, product, and industrial designers came together for 30 hours to create NEW bag prototypes for kite.pride.
We created bags from Olympic sails! When the sails - consisting of old Olympic sails and double handing boat sails were delivered to our office, excitement was in the air! Instead of being trashed, we turned the sails into valuable material from which we created unique & beautiful bags.
In 2018, we upcycled 420 kitesurfing kites, 23 sails AND provided 9506 hours of rehabilitation employment to men and women exiting the sex trafficking industry.
That is H.U.G.E.!
