At 5th Season, discarded clothing and textiles are innovatively and artistically transformed into fashionable, 100% hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind bags. Through our bags, we hope to resonate the importance of reducing our consumption and waste by challenging each other to creatively look at consumer products beyond their original intended purposes.
The name '5th Season' was chosen to signify that discarded material can enjoy yet another season – reincarnated, upcycled and refashioned into something new and unique.
Choose from our already made collection or contact me and we can start your own custom design with textile, appliqué and design of your choosing. If you have a pair of pants you don't wear anymore but just can't part with, turn it into a bag you will use everyday!
