FREITAG has finally worked out a way of repurposing the reflectors found on the truck tarps that go into our bags. From now on, FREITAG will be using them to increase safety on bikes. With only 900 bags available to assemble individually, the F675 DIXON Sling Bags are FREITAG’s newest recycled, reflected product included in the Sweat-Yourself-Shops.
Good ideas live forever, and all good things deserve a second life. That includes the reflective contour markings that make trucks glow in the dark on the highway at night as if they were straight out of the science fiction movie classic, Tron. FREITAG is pleased to have found a way of giving these reflectors a second chance of life on their bags, which will ultimately help protect the people carrying them throughout the night.
FREITAG is giving the recycled truck tarp reflectors their debut on the new F675 DIXON Sling Bag and transforming the three FREITAG Sweat-Yourself-Shops in Kyoto, Bangkok and Zurich into Reflect-Yourself-Shops. So, now, where DIY bag makers could formerly put finishing touches to their unique, recycled tarp bag, customers can now put together their sling bags from a fabric made of empty PET bottles, discarded car safety belts with color highlights, a pouch made of discarded truck tarps, and recycled reflectors.
Starting June 8th, you can book a production slot for one of the F675 DIXON bags at www.freitag.ch/reflect-yourself. If you are interested, it is advised that you book your session sooner rather than later, as they’re only 300 unique pieces available at each of the FREITAG Sweat-Yourself-Shops in Kyoto, Bangkok Silom and Zurich Grüngasse.
