The PELICAN is handmade from upcycled plastic carrier bags fused together to form a strong, durable, waterproof fabric (note zip is not waterproof). This bag is perfect for holding stitch markers, darning needles and other small bits and bobs when you are on the go. It is large enough to easily fit credit cards, but still fits in a pocket or easy to throw in your knitting bag.
Dimensions: 120 x 85mm | 4.75 x 3.35"
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.
