Upcycled mini fabric bag with shoulder straps
Limited to 1 piece per design
This repurposed tote bag is hand-made with fabrics from SaturdayClub’s end of the line clothing. Due to the many unique and interesting designs of our clothing, special details such as ruffles, are carefully cut off, and pieced together to create this line of one-of-a-kind bags. It’s the quintessential carrier for toting around mandarin oranges and red packets this Lunar New Year! It’s also a perfect fun-size to carry your wallet and phone, and even some hand sanitisers.
Reducing textile waste
Instead of disposing our fashion waste, we put aside our end of the line clothing and deconstruct them into fabric panels to be used for the next project.
At the start of the pandemic, we sewed fabric masks and donated them to people in need. This time round, we construct them back into beautiful unique bags, giving fresh life into unloved cast offs.
This is one of the many ways we contribute to the sustainability of the fashion industry, minimizing textile waste that end up in landfills and incinerators.
SaturdayClub gives back
60% of the purchase price will go to our partnering Social Enterprise, Alfya Atelier.
They run free sewing classes and provides employment to the less fortunate and special needs persons. Click here to check out their profile on RaiSE.
Each unique bag made tells a different story.
Alfya Atelier connects individuals recovering from mental health issues, from low-income backgrounds, youth, and women at risk to job opportunities in sewing and tailoring. Each project is matched with a beneficiary who will go through their free sewing workshops to pick up sewing skills and a chance to make their life better. They make time and meet at the studio for classes, and to use the sewing machines provided to complete the bags assigned to them. In a way, Alfya Atelier becomes a hub not only for job opportunities, but for emotional support as well.
This bag is made by Auntie Ping and Cik Nana, who are beneficiaries of Alfya Atelier. They are experienced seamstresses who have been matched with our sustainability project.
