In recently years, fashion and designer brands have tried hard to be more environmentally responsible. From reducing their water consumption to re-appropriating materials, lots of brands have experimented with corporate social responsibility. But the latest collection from TENT by Esther Porter has taken this just a bit further.
Using recycled materials like tent fabric (reclaimed from summer music festivals), rubber-bonded cotton canvas and nickel hardware, it’s clear that TENT by Esther Porter is serious about making a difference. Keeping true to the brand’s signature utilitarian aesthetics, the British handmade bags are practical and perfect for the urban man.
This season, TENT by Esther Porter introduces a new backpack in addition to their signature barrel, holdall, satchel and rucksacks. The TENT backpack is simply constructed, boxy in shape and inspired by military bags, cycle-panniers and dive wet-bags. It features a fold-over style that keeps things secure and waterproof.
This season’s new colours include shades of sky blue, sandy-khaki, golden yellow and soft grey. Finished with great technical detail, the Spring/Summer 2013 collection from TENT by Esther Porter is both practical and weather-resistant.
