Look Good and Feel Good: Mosey

Here’s the thing about Mosey:

They make awesome bags… out of plastic. That’s right, I said “plastic”. Now just scroll down the page and look at those rockinly handsome bags and believe me when I say the primary textile used in their collection is called PET fabric and it is derived from type “#1” recyclable plastic.  I know it’s hard to believe, but the main source of this plastic is everyday water and beverage bottles. What’s more striking to you? That Mosey uses one of the world’s most common types of consumer packaging? Or that this option exists in today’s apparel design? It’s truly brilliant, in my opinion and here’s why:

“The manufacture of PET fabrics requires a fully integrated supply chain from bottle collection to chip processing to reconstituting the yarn and final fabric production. The latest recycled PET fabrics are known for their durability, light weight, and comfort. Overall fabric performance is similar to (petroleum based) polyester and nylon fabrics and we know you will appreciate this special textile like we do.” http://www.moseylife.com

2- Their leather comes from a sophisticated supplier that has transformed the tanning process through the use of alternative and renewable sources of energy, specialized equipment, recycling, and the latest available technology in leather manufacturing.
