PRESS: ECOUTERRE: VEGAN BAGS FROM UPCYCLED BEER FILTER CLOTH

REWILDER takes the "craft" in "craft beer" pretty seriously. Based in Los Angeles, the cruelty-free label reclaims polypropylene filters, used to strain barley and hops during beer manufacturing, and transforms them into effortlessly sleek totes, bags, clutches, and aprons.

"[They're] lightweight, strong, durable, breathable, and very beautiful, with a unique patina from manufacturing." Stout produces a heavier gray patina, while wheat and other light beers create a pale copper tone. For greater variety, Rewilder overdyes some of its bags while embellishing others with splashes of reclaimed house paint. No two are completely alike.
