Global lifestyle brand Eastpak, has partnered with fashion marketplace, Depop, on a Re-built to Resist collection that makes strides toward a sustainable future with a limited drop of 50 upcycled backpacks. Available on Eastpak's U.S. Depop shop, the offering is a sustainably conscious solution to reducing waste while preserving style.
The exclusive Re-built to Resist collection is the sustainability-driven result of the limited warranty policy. Each Padded Pak'r backpack from the collection consists of pre-loved bags from Eastpak's warranty center that are beyond repair, fusing two repurposed colorways or prints to create one-of-a-kind designs. Each piece features a main compartment, zip-fastening front pocket, 13-inch laptop sleeve space, jacquard webbing and a detachable branded keychain. Additional elements include a padded back panel, padded shoulder straps and a wrapping bag, also made from leftover materials.
"We are thrilled to work with a like-minded partner like Depop – a leader in changing how we view and buy fashion – as Eastpak continues to work for a sustainable future," says Domitille Parent, vice president, global brand management, Eastpak. "The Re-built to Resist upcycled collection will showcase just how durable Eastpak product is."
