Lviv brand ETNO presents a new line of shopper bags created using upcycling technology,
which is based on reuse of waste materials without their industrial processing.
According to Markiyan Myskiv, the founder of the ETNO brand, the idea to launch a line of
upcycled shoppers originated during the visit to the production site after finishing the last
“Among rows of sewing machines, large fabric rolls and finished products, I ran across a
box in which workers carefully put some fabric remnants. Most pieces of fabric were in
good condition and had embroidery on them. I immediately realized that they could be
used somehow,” commented Markiyan
“As the products we make are for young, creative and environmentally conscious people
who appreciate beauty and functionality and care about the world they live in, we quickly
came up with an idea to create such handy shopper bags," adds Markiyan.
Shoppers were made from various pieces of monochrome flax left after the creation of
Garden collection. The collection was virtually monochrome, so the designer decided to
combine different pieces of fabric in one pattern. There were also many embroidered
offcuts, which resulted in a combination of different textures of bags.
Laconic design and reserved colors of shoppers make them a universal accessory to any
outfit. The bags are made of 100% natural textile and present a great alternative to plastic
Shopper bags are available from the Lviv showroom of the brand.
