Over 100 TONS of filter cloth is thrown away annually in the US.
We are honored to be recognized for our work saving and transforming valuable materials as a finalist in the International Handbag Design Awards for Klean Kanteen's Best Green Handbag. See our process in this short video:
100% of the materials for Rewilder's Dune tote are salvaged. Our filter cloth is post-industrial, collected from large American breweries after being used to filter hops and barley in beer making. Our handles are constructed from retired climbing ropes collected from local gyms.
The design of the collection is inspired by the material itself, drawing on its strengths (lightweight, durable, distinctive patina) to make utilitarian pieces that are thoughtful in purpose and design. No two are exactly alike, and each one balances elegance with environmental integrity.
