It all began with Freitag, a Swiss brand that came up with the idea of using tarps from trucks to create messenger bags. After that, it was only a matter of time before more designers saw the potential in large PVC canvases from advertising to use the material in similar ways (check out Modulab and Baumm).

Even if the idea is not new, designers continue to come up with good ideas to re-use this material. Chilean brand Reprint has thought about a clever one: shower curtains. They also have cushions, puffs and sofa chairs; and offer refurbishing your furniture with prints. Check them out in the extended.Reprint is run by designer Rosario Contreras Torres, and is one of the many interesting brands experimenting with recycled materials that have emerged from Chile in the last months.

If you haven't yet, please check out the work of other locals: Camila Labra's plastic bag boots, and Alexandra Guerrero's cigarette butts clothing. Also don't miss some very cool clothing and accessories concepts made by Chilean students with Puma trainers.

Here are Reprint's designs with PVC advertising banners, sold at Santiago de Chile or by request through the brand's website.
