PONCHO: BEYOND WASTE

WHAT
A collection of three rain ponchos, made for a millennial lifestyle. Each one is recyclable without disassembly due to its mono-material design from a zero-waste pattern.

WHY
Sabine Silaraja set out to redesign one of the most-used items in her travelling friend’s backpack into a circular product.

WHY
While the COMMUTER empowers the urban cyclist to embrace the weather, the NOMAD poncho with its tailored hood, packable size and functional versatility fits the backpacker. The ESCAPIST poncho offers comfort during a day trip or festival, with a longer back panel to sit on and a safe pocket for valuables.

QUOTE
When designing for circularity, convenience cannot be overlooked.
