OffChutes' upcycled handmade items are fashioned from recycled paragliders and parachutes. My goal is to reduce the addition of material to landfills. All my wallets, bags, purses and accessories are made from the incredibly strong ripstop nylon fabric and cords of used paragliders and parachutes. These giant sails or wings that allow pilots to float in the clouds on thermal winds have a lifespan that renders them useless when they can no longer pass their safety inspections. But the gorgeously colored and incredibly durable fabric gets a second life as unique "green" fashion accessories. No two items that I remake are ever identical. I never know what I will get to work with. Each wing has its own story. Own a piece of the paragliding experience.
