Description

A backpack with a clip on pouch. This backpack is part of Prada's Re-Nylon collection which uses Econyl, a nylon thread recycled out of ghost fishing nets and produced by Aquafil. It features a Prada rubberised patch, a flap with buckle and magnetic button, two outside pockets with buckles, two inside pockets and a metal triangle logo. The Re-nylon collection started with a range of six bags including a belt bag, shoulder bag, tote, duffel bag, and two backpacks. These bags represent the first step in the plan for Prada to phase out all virgin nylon over the next 2 years (by the end of 2021). The ReNylon project sees a collaboration between Prada and Aquafil, a manufacturer with over fifty years' experience in producing synthetic textiles. Econyl is a material that is produced through the process of depolymerisation and can be recycled an indefinite number of times with no loss in material quality. The use of this material moves Prada into a closed loop system towards a circular economy. The traditional Prada triangle logo has been adapted to reflect the recycled and circular focus of this product.
