Zas Pas is a designer and manufacturer of bags, handbags, purses and cosmetic bags that are upcycled from seat belts. The owners cooperate with seven junkyards in Bohemia to collect seatbelts otherwise destined for the incinerator. They personally design all prototypes and products are sewn in Chrudim by local tailors. Bags can be bought through their e-shop or at a variety of small design stores in Prague including Julius, Kuráž and Parazit, as well as some local fashion markets.
“Seat belts are usually not recycled from scrap yards and wander into incinerators. I thought it was a waste of the material ….” Tereza Lstibůrková, co-founder and designer
