The Cuttlefish zip pouch is handmade from single use plastic carrier bags fused together to form a strong, durable, waterproof fabric. This bag is perfect for haberdashery bits & bobs, pencils, markers, cosmetics, or other item you wish to carry and protect.
Each item is unique, there will never be two exactly the same. Each upcycled accessory is named after animals who are harmed by out single use plastic waste.
Kelly Ordemann is a designer and maker based in Edinburgh where she creates upcycled accessories from single-use plastic bags.
By fusing together several layers of single-use plastic carrier bags using heat and pressure, a new ‘fabric’ is created that is significantly more durable, lightweight and waterproof. This new fabric is used to create functional everyday accessories that will last for many years, keeping the original materials out of the landfills and oceans.
Each hand-crafted item is unique, using only the original markings on the bags.
Kelly has designed a series of zip pouches, tote bags, and protective laptop/tablet sleeves - all of which are handmade in Scotland.
