From celluloid to chic and eco-appropriate bags from Modulab Ecodiseño

Ever wondered what happens with the actual film that is projected onto the big screen at the cinema?, One creative company based in Chile, Modulab Ecodiseño, is using a Mexican weaving technique to refashion used 35mm film into a stunning collection of handbags.

Modulab Ecodiseño also works with other movie-related material, like film billboards and posters.

Inspired by the magic of the film industry, Modulab previously recycled movie billboard banners into a diverse collection including a messenger bag, laptop bag, yoga mat holder, tote bag and clutch with wristlet. The billboard banner material provided a strong quality base with impressive graphics. With the recently completed collection, the Modulab ecodiseño team looked to put an updated twist on a well known weaving technique through the use of yet another unexpected material. Strips of previously used film are interwoven then lined. The bag styles offer the option to wear as a clutch or shoulder bag and are available in a variety of colors for the strap and handle.
