This Local Brand Makes Bags, Masks + More From Recycled Katsa Fabric
They go for as low as P35!
(SPOT.ph) Reducing plastic waste is even trickier during quarantine, especially with all the packages for your deliveries. If you're looking for ways to make your lifestyle a little bit more sustainable, local brand Craftcha upcycles katsa fabric and turns them into useful everyday items.
Craftcha started out in 2009 after Typhoon Ondoy struck the Philippines. The folks behind the micro-business enterprise were inspired to put up a business that advocates cloth waste management by minimizing the use of disposable plastics. "We aim to produce cost efficient, environmentally friendly, functional and sustainable products," shares the brand. Craftcha makes use of waste cloth—one of which is katsa—as raw material to produce household goods and everyday items such as tote bags, laundry bags, shorts, dasters, shorts, pants, and even reusable face masks. Best part? They're super affordable, too! Nothing is over P350 and prices even go as low as P35 for dish towels.
