Spanish clothing label TWOTHIRDS is launching a sustainable accessories collection set to debut in SS14. The label has a passion for environmentally friendly clothing, and this accessories collection is the perfect compliment. The accessories include a wallet as well as iPad covers and Macbook sleeves, all made exclusively out of heavy canvas and Mediterranean cork.
“We have been looking for the right material for the last two years and after a lot of options fell in love with the quality, style and eco-friendlyness of this amazing material”, said founder Lutz Schwenke.”Apart [from that] it is harvested on our doorstep.”
The collection hints at a nautical inspiration through the use of tough navy canvas and horizontal white stripes painted across the cork body. Utilizing cork as a main material in each accessory not only ensures every piece is unique and attractive, but also adds a serious dose of environmental awareness to the overall aesthetic.
Cork has a multitude of green characteristics, including the fact that harvesting cork does almost no damage to the bark of the tree, and that most cork scraps are collected and reused, so almost nothing is wasted. These accessories pack all of the style neccessary to satisify your shopping addiction with none of the requisite guilt afterwards.
TWOTHIRDS will be at Capsule New York this Monday and Tuesday and Capsule Vegas next month.
