The perfect bag to tote everything with you, hands free! Both functional and fashionable, our Hipsacks are finished by hand locally, with a fully-lined zip-up front pocket and SlingRing-waist closure. One size fits most, with a generous tail.
Each Hipsack is made from 3 recycled bottles. It is soft and moldable with a "wool-like" body and wonderful breathability. Repreve blends combine the best of comfort, sustainability and safety all in one.
Q: What is Repreve?
A: Repreve, made by Unifi, is a family of synthetic fibers containing recycled materials. Unlike many other recycled yarns, the recycled content is certified by an outside party.
Q: How is Repreve yarn made?
A: PET plastic bottles are recycled and collected. The bottles enter a unique material conversion process, where they are chopped, melted, and reformulated to form a recycled chip. The Repreve chip then enters a proprietary extrusion and texturing process to form Repreve recycled fiber.
Q: Is Repreve safe? Does it contain BPA?
A: The Repreve yarn Tekhni uses is made from recycled PET water bottles. PET is food grade and BPA-free. In addition, Repreve’s Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification ensures that yarns are free of harmful levels of more than 100 restricted substances. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is the world's leading label for textiles screened for harmful substances.
