Puebco: Utilitarian Essentials Made from Ingeniously Reused Materials
Recently, I stumbled on a waxed cotton grocery bag so uncommonly good-looking I suspect it would help even the most forgetful shoppers among us to remember our reusable bags.
The bag is by Japanese brand Puebco, and eco-consciousness is part and parcel of the company’s ethos: They’re focused on “creating things instinctively,” as they say, crafting a wide array of utilitarian essentials for all over the house using found and recycled materials, from parachutes and tents to old woolen trousers.
Since Julie catalogued a few of Puebco’s standout offerings in 2017 (see Utilitarian Goods from Japan, Reclaimed and Recycled Edition), we figured it was time for a sequel. Here are a few of our favorite Puebco finds spotted around the Internet (and much more available straight from Puebco).
