Which materials are you using?
We use what we find. We process second hand materials that are otherwise wasted or lost in landfills.
We love handmade products!
Our products are all carefully handmade and are built to last. We are sure that our bright colors and googly eyes will spread smiles (✿◠‿◠) from Austria to Bangladesh and everywhere in-between.
The first PET Bottle Purse was created in 2004 by Zitta Schnitt.
While studying at art & crafts school, Zitta Schnitt noticed the frequent consumption of soft drinks at her school. They where repeatedly bought, consumed and thrown away in the same minute. Dumping this resource into the classroom bin, without recycling, felt incorrect to her. In order to tackle this issue, she started to collect plastic waste, which later got transformed into designs objects of every day use. Many projects got created at home, since the use of the materials where not well enough respected at her school. So it happened, that PET Bottle Purse was created while skipping school.
