Re-Kånken Backpack

Swedish outdoor gear retailer Fjällräven has just improved its classic backpack by making a version made entirely from recycled plastic bottles. Each Re-Kånken backpack contains 11 bottles, which are converted into a yarn that is used for the fabric, lining, and webbing. The process is called SpinDye and, according to Ecouterre, uses “far less water, chemicals, and energy than conventional dyeing techniques.” The monochromatic backpacks come in 11 vibrant colors.
