Teresa von der Heiden

Teresa's bags are handmade from recycled materials including discarded billboards, sails, sun-shades and fabric offcuts from textile manufacturing. They are bound by trimmed straps of used rubber bike tubes, which are water-repellent and very robust. She converts old car seat belts into bag carrying straps, sourced from local scrap yards, which are still strong after years of providing safety in vehicles. All second-hand materials are carefully cleaned and thoroughly inspected before reprocessing, nevertheless sporadically slight signs of wear are noticeable which add character to the products.
