Recycled Metal Tabs
BOTTLETOPS co-founders Cameron Saul and Oliver Wayman created the brand to empower and inspire people and the planet through sustainable design. Their journey started by crafting bags from upcycled bottle tops in Kenya, after a collaboration with Mulberry, the bags became international best sellers, all while supporting artisans and funding health education in Africa. By discovering the beauty of upcycled metal they created their signature chain mail made from recycled metal ring pulls, that makes up the BOTTLETOP DNA we see today.
BOTTLETOP is founded on three main principles; People, product and planet. With these key elements at the core of what they do, they are innovating and striving to make a better future. From the plastic free and carbon neutral manufacturing and supply chain, ethical and transparent working conditions to their sustainable and fashion forward end product, every element is carefully thought out without compromise.
We have created the LDC values in the form of our three symbols that explore the mindful, traceable and transparent processes and practices that our brands adhere to and stand for, to help you discover how the products are made and make conscious choices.
