Worn Again – retired Virgin hot air balloons
Worn Again is an upcycling company that makes new, design-led products from corporate waste materials and has been giving a new lease of life to ‘retired’ materials since 2005. Their vision is to transform consumption and manufacturing patterns through the production of goods made from upcyclable materials and to generate income for Anti-Apathy, a registered charity. They have now moved to outerwear, bags and accessories.
Their latest collection, Bon Voyage!, made from retired Virgin hot air balloons, has been designed by one of Britain’s most exciting new designers, Christopher Raeburn.
