Announcement   NO MORE TALK OF "AGEING" OR " DETERIORATING", INSTEAD "PATINA" AND "AUTHENTICITY" - 15 YEARS OF HANDMADE peace4youBAGS
The peace4youBAGS credo is to take classical well-proven bag designs and manufacture them from a wide range of recycled materials that would otherwise end up as waste. We like to refer to this process as "upcycling" as we turn hitherto worthless materials into a product of new value.

This is the most amazing bag. It took almost 2 months to arrive from Germany to Colorado, but it was worth the wait. I have received numerous compliments on the bag and love that it is so unique. I will definitely purchase from this shop again.

I love this bag. Functionally it's wonderful but it is also functional art that travels with you wherever you go. It is exactly as described but better, because once you get it, you realize the difference between this bag and the factory made bag is indescribable. It has it's own identity, character and utility. One can feel it is built to last. This bag is worth every penny and I have half a mind to get another.

About

...bags for a better world

Featured Seller : https://blog.etsy.com/en/featured-seller-peace4you/

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. Our credo is to take classical well-proven bag designs and manufacture them from a wide range of recycled materials that would otherwise end up as waste.

Ever since we have become something like "material detectives". Whenever we discover interesting, charismatic, and suitable materials, we bring them to the manufactory to turn them into new and wonderful bags. Those materials are e.g. navy-kitbags, french army-tents, and used leather-jackets.

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 !
