Sun kissed, and with a personal touch
Remember: our collection is made of life vests that were left on the shores of Greece when newcomers arrived in Europe. That means the sun and seawater had time to act on the material and create distinct hues and variations. Beyond nature’s action, our tailors make sure that each piece has different features from the original life vest. Black straps, reflectors, and safety instruction tags are used together with the multiple hues of fabric to create unique pieces that you can enjoy and be proud of.
The Eco Tote Bag comes in mixed colors, usually ranging from orange to red, but you can also choose to add blue, green or black. Just let us know in your order!
