JEANBAG was founded with a passion for the environment and a little idea… to transform your old denim jeans into beautiful and useful products for your home and life. Your cut-offs are filled with your stories and memories. They’re too precious to remain hidden in the back of your closet. We give them a new life, honouring the time, skill and resources that went into creating them in the first place.
Every JEANBAG product is handmade in Australia and is completely unique, just like you.
At JEANBAG we repurpose your old blue jeans into beautiful and useful homewares and lifestyle products. From the very beginning we decided to do one thing and do it well, which is why we focus on transforming recycled denim jeans into well-designed and exceptionally crafted products.
One of the magical outcomes of working with recycled materials is that every single product we make is unique. No two are exactly the same. They’re all made by hand in our Brisbane-based studio for people who value artisanal handmade products and our environment.
While we work with amazing clothing charities to source most of the denim for our products, there are two ways you can get directly involved in recycling your own denim jeans. If you feel your old favourites are no longer your bag and are not in suitable condition to donate to charity, you can send them to us via our My JEANBAG initiative, and have them transformed into your very own JEANBAG. Through our Recycle Me initiative, we incorporate your jeans into any of our products for general sale and in return we give you 10% off your next online order. It’s our way of thanking you for helping us keep beautiful denim out of landfill.
