Looks like you are practical and self-aware enough to know you need a little extra space. Carry all the day’s essentials and more: phone, wallet, keys, sunglasses, planner, bars of chocolate, whatever you need to accompany your day, and look sharp while doing it!

The Merganser VEE Zip has a pieced-together upcycled denim front and a railroad back panel.  We named the zip collection after birds to riff off how the vee design emulates a feather's branching structure. Each of our bags is one-of-a-kind and is as vibrant and abundant in color variations as our feathered friends. 

SIZE: 14" x 7.5" x 2.5"

HOW AM I MADE? The ZIP collection is manufactured in the REcreate designs' production house in Polson, MT using reclaimed jeans, deadstock fabric (waste of the fashion industry), and waxed cotton. The process begins by deconstructing discarded jeans that we acquire from local second-hand shops. The Indigo Collection transforms old torn-up denim into new products that tell a story and are one-of-a-kind just like you. Each bag comes with its own serial no. to track how much material we reclaim and divert from the landfill each year. By eliminating the need to produce new and raw materials, upcycling helps conserve natural resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We estimate diverting 3000lbs of waste from the landfill each year. 

CARE: Do not machine wash. Use cold water and mild soap, and gently rub it on with a sponge before rinsing. Air dry.
