BEHIND THE SCENES: BACKPACKS MADE FROM RECYCLED MATERIALS
We get “recycled” a lot. What we do at Rewilder is actually better than recycling, removing materials from eternal life in the landfill. Our zero waste Airbag Backpack is upcycled from 100% automotive salvage – airbags and seatbelts. Upcycling removes material from the waste stream, and stops the need for new production and the use of natural resources.

Why is airbag material perfect for a backpack? An airbag is a protective shell, built to be indestructible.  Airbag material is high performance, lightweight, durable, waterproof, and surprisingly so beautiful. It has its own modern performance aesthetic and a unique textured graphic line pattern from its first life. The straps are made with salvaged seatbelts – strong and comfortable – that complement the high speed aesthetic.
