The Black Hole® bag, a durable and sustainable travel companion

The story of Patagonia and the environment began in 1993: the outdoor wear manufacturer was the first to manufacture fleeces made from post-consumer plastic bottles (http://plastic-lemag.com/des-reincarnations-stylees)

Over 25 year later, the California-based brand has unveiled a new collection of bags fully in line with its values. The collection, christened Black Hole®, was manufactured using 10 million used plastic bottles that were used to make 100% of the outer fabric and nets of the 25 different models that make up the collection. 

An ultra-strong 100% recycled post-consumer ripstop polyester material

As usual, the product exceeds expectations! Whether it is the tote bag, the backpack, the travel bag, the roller bag or even the saddle bag, the entire collection has the same DNA: lightweight but nevertheless strong 100% recycled post-consumer ripstop polyester material bags, durable and all-terrain bags with the best finishes. A padded pouch suitable for computers, zipped pockets, stretch pockets, reinforced padded shoulder straps, and more. Each model was designed to provide the maximum amount of comfort while remaining functional and suitable for urban or outdoor life. In order to offer the best possible resistance to adverse weather condition, the bags are coated in a water-repellent primer while a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) film provides them with elasticity and impact and tear resistance.
As an added benefit, the various models all have a pleasing and refined appearance, designed with a bright and varied palette of colours and a glossy finish.
