Tyvek®, not paper, not fabric, but 100% recyclable is taking Asia by storm. With hundreds of applications from clothing to the envelopes you receive eBay items in, Tyvek® is the latest fashion trend now available in the UK from BO-BORSA.
Concerned with how fast fashion industry has sped up global warming, leaving sea creatures without a home and beaches too ruined to enjoy, BO-BORSA is changing the tide showing us that new materials, applied in a sensible, thoughtful way can create products that stand the test of time, are recyclable, reusable and revolutionary in everyday lifmagine super strong but also lightweight bags – able to carry all your heavy items but with minimal impact to your luggage allowance. BO-BORSA is the first UK brand to utilise Tyvek® in creating unique bags and luggage that doesn’t cost or damage the Earth.
Michael Lambert, Managing Director of Ideaz Ltd the owner of the BO-BORSA brand says “I first came across Tyvek® being used in the fashion industry on a trip to Japan and when I came back to the UK I realised the material was widely used here but not in clothing or accessories. As a brand we have always wanted to create practical, stylish items whilst being conscious of the impact we might have on the environment - using Tyvek® as our main material has allowed us to do this. Last year we opened our first popup shop in Chiswick, which confirmed there is a real appetite for innovative fashion in London and we’re really excited to extend our product range and continue to find new and original materials to create unique pieces for our ever-growing customer base.”
