What can attendees expect to see from you at TCS?
Our fantastic first collection of everyday essential crossbody bags and reusable totes.

Can you tell us a little about your background and where the inspiration came from for your business? 
Based in Bondi, we are able to see the affects of marine pollution everyday. We had a very clear vision of wanting to design a reusable, versatile everyday bag collection that would help rid our environment of that pollution and use waste in a constructive way. We found fabrics that use recycled waste, and designed our collection with versatile, reusing ease in mind with colour inspiration from the ocean and environment around us.
