Vivienne Westwood launches affordable bags.
British designer Vivienne Westwood has decided to sell a sustainable and affordable line of bags, the ‘Ethical Africa collection’.
The bags are made of recyclable canvas, recycled flags, cloths, leather, and what remains from the manufacturing of leather products. Each bag is handmade in the Kenyan capital Nairobi and fits perfectly into Westwood’s ethical values. This is, after all, the woman who has openly stated that ‘everyone’ buys too much clothing.
The new collection consists of backpacks and cotton bags and is presented as being unisex. The bags have conspicuous colored motives, from an anchor print up to Westwoods characteristic planet and twirled forms.
The collection is for sale from Friday 24 January at Asos.
