BOTTLETOP began with handbags made from up-cycled bottle tops in Kenya, lined with leather offcuts. Through a design collaboration with Mulberry they became International best sellers, supporting craftsmen and providing young people with education in Africa. BOTTLETOP continued with handbags made from up-cycled ring pulls in Brazil, training artisans from local communities with new skills and providing more young people with education through the BOTTLETOP FOUNDATION. BOTTLETOP collaborates with International designers, brands and contemporary artists including Narciso Rodriguez, DKNY, the (Red) Foundation and Wangechi Mutu.
