DESIGN + CREATE // Textile Upcycling
TEXTILE UPCYCLING // Six Week Semester

With an emphasis on bringing existing garments back to like, you will explore the basics of construction and pattern making processes while designing and making (start to finish) your own tote bags, wallets and other attachments. Leaning into the 'Upcycle' part, we cover more than just sewing and dive into textile natural dying (turmeric, avocado etc). Then capping the semester off with a custom Into Carry Sidebag to show off all of your new upcycling skills.

Wow my world just opened up...can't believe this beautiful bag is made from what we throw away.
Absolutely terrific! Love the bag so much that I wish I bought it earlier.
Sleek, durable and sustainable. Literally all the things I wanted.
Compact & Reliable
Small on the outside, spacious on the inside. You can rely on these practical, low fuss carry companions to handle your everyday essentials.
The most sustainable product is the one you don't buy. Let's make fixing something easier than buying a new one. If your bag has an accident, we'll get you back on the road. For free.
Our small team of three handcraft every piece of Into Carry in our little Collingwood warehouse. Located out the back of zero waste cafe; Into Coffee.
