We’re a little shy of objects made from reclaimed material, often times the result more about the concept than the product itself. TENT might just change our minds though. Reusing tents left behind at festivals, abandoned as a symbol of goodtimes past, or perhaps just because most people are too hungover to bother packing them away, Porter turns them into something useful rather than consigning them to the tip.
“Tent fabric is combined with bonded canvas for strength and water resistance. Sturdy cotton webbing strapping increases wearability. Thick natural, vegetable-tanned leather and British-made equestrian-grade nickel hardware enhance the utilitarian ruggedness.” Made in England, this Autumn/Winter 2012 collection includes Duffles, holdalls and satchels in a mix of muted and bright colours. One to watch.
