The small cross-body or fanny-pack bag is the first FREITAG product with stealth technology. Made from empty PET bottles, it looks from a distance like a uniform, textile fanny pack – but is in reality a secret one-off.

F645 PHELPS is a cross-body bag with concealed truck tarp that can also be worn on the hips: a lightweight option for all those tight-lipped, practical thinking individualists who prefer to give a discreet insight into their idiosyncrasies in the midst of the party crowd.

FREITAG, the Zurich-based company known for its recycled truck tarps, is now expanding its bag line by launching four new and innovative ToP products (Tarp on PET). They will be made from individual, used truck tarps combined with a flexible, robust and lightweight textile of 100% recycled PET plastic bottles.

FREITAG fell in love with truck tarps in 1993, and still feels pretty much the same as the very first day. But now, after more than 25 years, the Zurich bag manufacturers are looking beyond their beloved truck tarps; as rugged and unique as they are, there are certain criteria the tarps simply can’t meet. The ToP products are just as unique as every bag from FREITAG – thanks to the continued inclusion of truck tarps – but also soft, light, and flexible thanks to a textile made from PET bottles dyed with a water saving process.

FREITAG ToP products (Tarp on PET) are made from discarded truck tarps and recycled PET plastic bottles. The PFC-free material from our partner is made of 100% recycled PET and is colored by integrating the spin dye method, which uses much less water and energy and far fewer chemicals than conventional piece dyeing methods. More details:
