Eco find: Textile waste is transformed in CozeDesign's handcrafted pouches

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Abandoned textiles from local businesses, hobby sewers, and garment factories get a second life in Vancouver designer Leanne Yee’s adorable vegan-friendly pouches (from $20).

      Under the name CozeDesign, the upcycler crafts ecoconscious sacks decorated with fun floral, critter, and geometric patterns that are perfect for holding cosmetics, small electronics, and other easy-to-lose essentials.

      We love the startup’s summer 2017 collection, which includes bags splashed with vibrant geraniums and a dreamy Pegasus print. Find CozeDesign online and at the Groundswell Community Marketplace on Granville Island during select Tuesdays this summer.
