Sail recycled backpack. For ocean lovers!

Carry a story with Deriva.

Deriva it’s a story of love for the ocean that still remains after generations. The most innovative backpacks using 3D technology are from Spain. They are producers of sail recycled backpacks.

During a visit to his parent’s garage, Goñi bump into some old sails and other materials that belonged to a family business. Deriva was sail atelier located in Donostia, a very deep-rooted sailor town of Spain.

Sails are a highly resistant material, as it can support extreme conditions: sun, water and wind. Goñi also found out that his granddad used the sails that no longer serve to craft new products for their friends and customers.

Inspired by these stories, forty years later Alba and Goñi, decided those sails could not be drifted. They created a collection giving the sails a second life.

Sail recycled backpacks, where one sail is one story

The 1701 collection backpack designs respond to a design inspired in the 80’s. For each sail, Dervia produces 8 backpacks, and no sail is the same. Every backpack is made out of a rubbed sail that has navigated, that has bearded storms and rough weather; that has competed and folded thousands of times. And that’s why every sail has its own story; every backpack is unique in its kind.
