TUI FlyJournal Spring Edition

Take a look inside the Spring Edition of TUI’s in flight magazine – The theme for this season’s product page is “upcycling” so we were excited to be contacted by the TUI magazine Art Editor who wanted to feature a Sails and Canvas product on the page.

Our Limited Originals series had caught her eye and in particular the retro rainbow flight bag.

The Sails and Canvas recycled sailcloth flight bag sits among a selection of upcycled products from across Europe – Swiss Freitag Backpacks manufactured from used truck tarpaulin – UK Wyatt & Jacks Triangular Pouches made from old bouncy castles, beach inflatables and salvaged deckchairs – Polish Ushirika, who sell bags made by a fairtrade co-operative based in Nairobi Kenya – German Upcycling Deluxe who reuse old cement sacks for their bags – Dutch based Handed By sell shopping bags which are hand woven by craftsmen in Vietnam and China using recycled plastic strips.

It’s good to see a pan-European collection of companies leading the way in the 3 R’s…Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Back with a new bag

Our latest collaboration exclusive to the Royal Museums Greenwich…Terra Nova recycled sail duffle bag created in response to the new Polar Worlds gallery at the National Maritime Museum and now available to buy on their online shop.

Part of the Terra Nova collection – this design features an embroidered badge, inspired by the emblem of the 1912 British Antarctic Expedition led by Captain Robert F Scott. 

The official Terra Nova emblem was designed by Edward Wilson, the expedition’s chief scientist and artist and was used on all the officers’ cutlery, dinnerware and on headed notepaper.

One of the most travelled tea clippers of it’s era, the Cutty Sark was built in Dumbarton, Scotland in 1869 and is now an award winning visitors attraction in Greenwich, under the umbrella of the Royal Museums Greenwich.

The Cutty Sark Shop had a facelift to mark the ship’s 150th anniversary and we were delighted when the Museum added our Sails and Canvas duffle in 3 jaunty colours, red, yellow and blue, to the shop’s offering….bags ahoy!
