Re-purposing Volcom Pipe Pro Vinyl Banners To Make Bags, Cases and Changing Mats
In desperate need of a second life, past years’ Volcom Pipe Pro event banners have been repurposed into iPad and Laptop Cases, Surf Board Bags, Surf Changing Mats and Messenger Bags. Created by our friends at The Progress Project, who share our strong commitment to sustainability, we’re able to keep hundreds of pounds of material from hitting landfills.
These aren’t novelty pieces, they’re the real deal. With items featuring American made YKK brand zippers and Dual Stainless Steel YKK Zipper Pulls, UV treated bonded nylon stitching and Recycled PET binding and water resistant Nylon stitching, these are sure to stand up to the day-in and day-out wear and tear that typical bags and cases encounter.
“I’ve been using samples now for a few months, and they’re great!” -Derek Sabori, VP of Volcom Sustainability
Given the limited nature of the source material, we’re only able to offer these products occasionally, so until then, check out a few photos of Noah from The Progress Project sewing up a surfboard bag.
