This colorful laptop sleeve from the MU Collection made a long journey to you. It once was a life vest, helping people reach safety. Now, upcycled into a colorful laptop sleeve, it’s helping connect creative newcomers (often with a refugee background) to the job market, leveraging their talents to build a new life in the Netherlands.
Connections between newcomers and locals are at the core of a feeling of belonging, safety,
resilience, and building a successful and flourishing society.
This is the impact that you can be part of!
This bright laptop sleeve features handcrafted design and a cheerful look. It is interesting enough to be carried on its own, and versatile enough to be easily packed into other bags.
Each sleeve is one-of-a-kind, since they are made of life vests that were left on the beaches, the sun and sea water acted on the material and made distinct hues and variations. Beyond nature’s action, our tailor team makes sure each laptop sleeve has different features from the original life vests, such as the safety instructions you can see here.
The bright laptop sleeve’s cushion and padding are also made of the original cushions and padding from the life vests, that, and its secured edges and corners, provide impressive protection for your laptop. Fair warning, we are not sure if it floats!
Makers Unite developed this colorful laptop sleeve 13″ with esteemed fashion designers Dora Bami and Jolanda Luymes, to reflect the powerful message and the unique stories behind each item.
