Made with polyurethane and recycled fishnets, this eye-catching bag from designer Luisa Cevese, gives eco-friendly accessories an edgy flare. At the end of each summer, Samuele—a Sicilian fisherman who lives in Salina but spends every summer working in Filicudi —gives Cevese all of his damaged and useless fishing nets. She then repurposes these nets to create unique pieces. In 1996 Luisa Cevese founded “Luisa Cevese Riedizioni,” a design studio where she re-appropriates production waste to create new materials. She encases materials, in this case, fishnets, in polyurethane to create one-of-a-kind fashion and home accessories.
