In a one-of-kind collaboration – initiated by their founders, Nina Sieber of WEAT Studio and Dr. Christina Dean of The R Collective, the two brands combined their expertise and creativity to create a responsible design with a worthy cause. Joining forces, a curated collection of Weekender Canvas Bags has been developed through up- and recycling materials, converting single-use plastics and rescued luxury leather leftover into a stylish range of tote bags all towards supporting a more circular and sustainable fashion industry.
WEAT Studio was created to serve strong, powerful, cosmopolitan women with a curated assortment of handbags and accessories. Inspired by their multifaceted lifestyles and independence, the brand redefines luxury into smart, versatile pieces with a seamless blend of fashion, finesse, and functionality. Following a sustainable approach in design and production, the aspiration of WEAT Studio is to do much more with less creating pieces to treasure for years to come.
THE R COLLECTIVE
The R Collective is a thriving social impact business with a vision of a world without fashion’s waste. By building an extensive network to rescue, reuse and recycle luxurious and premium waste materials into affordable fashion products, their mission is to accelerate sustainability and fashion circularity. The hallmark “The R Mark” verifies the traceability and circularity of their products, advocating fashion with a conscience.
With an unrivalled access to fashion waste, The R Collective provided high quality rescued luxury leather waste, which was reworked into a unique design with a high-end finish. Attached to each bag is the “The R Mark”, The R Collective’s hallmark that assures the rescue of waste for reuse or recycling.
To extend the ‘zero-waste’ principle, the sourced canvas material used for each handbag is made from 26-30 recycled plastic bottles. The use of recycled single-use plastics further supports a more circular and sustainable approach to fashion.
Whether to the beach, for a weekend escape or on-the-go shopping, the Weekender Canvas collection allows to carry life in style while knowing a difference is being made.
