Repleat

Repleat first signature bags are primarily made from wasted nylon from the manufacture of umbrellas. This makes Repleat waterproof, light-weight and colorful.

By using the method of pleating, the designer is able to piece nylon scraps into a seamless full piece, which became her signature and main technique to her unique fabric.

Pleats refresh the look of wasted nylon and increases its durability. Repleat then moved onto to designing Hobo Bags made from 100% Polyester Taffeta. Inspired by colours from different eras, these bags are water resistant, light weight, durable and trendy.

Her intense effort expresses her desire to care for the environment and envisions a future of more upcycling efforts made into fashionable durable wear.
