Gabriola Island, BC Canada
Diverted Denim Tote Bag
This new-to-you innovation is one of our most popular products! Artistic panels use "waste-bands" from jeggings and other tired stretch denim. The tote features durable denim pockets and other diverted materials making a reversible, versatile, and sustainable alternative to disposable paper or plastic bags.
Each tote is one-of a-kind and handmade with love by local makers on Gabriola Island.

Our goal is to give all textiles a second life. Stretch denim is exceedingly abundant and difficult to resell. Our team diverts this challenging resource for new-to-you denim tote bags! When you choose Relove Local products, you're reducing carbon emissions, investing in fair labour, and reusing existing resources rather than creating demand for more raw material extraction.
Less is More
Reduce cost by investing in durable, re-usable products.
Reduce impact by supporting the circular economy.
Waste into Resource
Relove Local products are made from textile waste that we rescue, repair, and reimagine into new-to-you resources.
