MADOC Paul's Profile

About

In 2001 my son Mick Paul and I founded the recycling manufactory "peace4you.net" in Bremerhaven, GERMANY.

Year after year western civilization produces millions of tons of waste while at the same time depleting natural resources. At "peace4you.net" we felt that we could make a contribution to addressing this problem.

We like to refer to this process as "upcycling" as we turn hitherto worthless materials into a product of new value. Every bag is a unique item with its own unique patina.

My career in sewing started about 20 years ago when I designed and created large-scale kites for kite events in Denmark, the Netherlands, and Germany. During that time I aquired the techniques to produce storm and rain resistent products.

In summary, it is now 14 years ago that our family founded "peace4you.net" bringing together what belongs together, manufacturing bags "for a better world".
