Why repurposed bags?
As an Army ROTC cadet studying in the bucolic setting of Middlebury, Vermont, I've often felt distant from the War on Terrorism and my future military service. When you hear fewer news stories about the conflicts our military is engaged in and far less about the men and women who bravely sacrifice their lives and limbs to support them, it is easy to become complacent in such a beautiful, stimulating, and supportive environment as college. I wanted to create something that would emotionally and physically touch civilians in their every day lives and remind them, in a beautiful way, of the challenges our country and servicemen face. Most people use a bag of some form throughout his or her day. By recycling and repurposing military gear with a fashionable touch, we create sturdy and sophisticated bags, whose sale will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). In this way, our bags are rugged and refined, but most importantly, kind.
