About TheVIVgoods

Sales 979
On Etsy since 2017

It all Began with my fear of paragliding.

When I met my Husband four years ago he was already completely head over heals... with flying. The first time I watched him jump off a mountain I just about lost it, imagining all the terrible ways he was going to fall out of the sky. Since that day I've watched him jump into the sky countless times, and have more or less accepted that this is part of loving him. 

One summer he came home from a paragliding tour to tell me about a friend who got swept up and crashed into the side of a cliff. The friend was miraculously completely unharmed but his paraglider was damaged beyond repair. My 47th question was, what happened to the paraglider? "Oh he just threw it away" my Husband responded. I was shocked that 10 plus meters of brightly coloured nylon and rope was sent straight to the landfill, I knew I had to give it a better fate.

Jump forward a year, and my first collection of upcycled paraglider bags (PARAGLIDER x U.BAGS) were born.  #TheVIVgoods is interrupting this cycle of waste by transforming this light as a feather, and strong as a parachute, material into a product that inspires resourcefulness and a handsfree lifestyle. 

Every PARAGLIDER x U.BAG is a unique product, and a member of a movement towards a more sustainable fashion industry. See a bag you love? Don't wait, once it is gone it is gone! If you like what you see, favourite my shop to get notified about shop updates.
