Recycled truck tarpaulin in to bags and maybe jackets

| Recycle Outdoor Gear | 10th July, 2013

M-24 was founded by Mat Dusting, a young industrial product designer with a passion for winter sports. Over the years Mat found many of his bags broke because he overfilled them or loaded them with sharp-edged objects, like skis or snowboards. Even while at university, he found many bags broke because they were knocked or caught on sharp corners. Frustrated with having to buy a new bag every year, Mat decided to design his own.

M24 bags are designed from recycled truck tarpaulin. Each bag is unique because of the variety of lorry curtains (truck tarps) collected. So the product range is constantly changing

For the last 6 months they have been wondering if it was possible to design waterproof clothing from recycled truck tarp. Recently, fashion student Kate from UWE Bristol created the world’s first suit jacket made from recycled truck tarp. The truck tarp suit jacket could be the first stepping stone towards creating a small collection of M-24 waterproof jackets. They would love to get your feed back  feedback or if you have any suggestions?
