Recycled materials are retold stories
Ropes, sheets, safety harnesses, fire hoses, tires and tubes, and other materials are used daily. They serve, guard, and travel with us wherever we go. Each of these materials holds a story; they “saw a world” that left a mark on them. Here at FlyRooster, these materials get resurrected again, exposing you to their past stories on the one hand, and are ready to experience new adventures with you on the other.
How it all Began
As a climber, I found that many of the materials used in my sport ended up in the trash. Since I’m also an environmentalist, caring deeply about our planet, I found it offensive that so many materials are put into the trash and discarded.
That pushed me to search for a proper way to reclaim those materials. Many of them were designed to last almost forever, and as a craftsman mastering the sewing machine, I’ve started developing new products based on those materials. In the beginning, I used mainly climbing ropes, but the deeper I went into it, I’ve started to collect, research, and reclaim many other materials.
These days, we use in our advanced workshop materials such as parachute and kites sheets and harnesses, safety harnesses and straps from the aviation industry, expired fire hoses, tire tubes, and the tire itself, and what became the star of our studio – climbing ropes.
Hand Made Stories
We believe that materials have souls. They bear the marks of time and scars of journeys they have undertaken and the handprints and stories of all the people who have had the privilege to use them, “they have seen a world.” Turning those materials into a new product retains their stories which can now continue to be told. Not just that, but now they are writing a new chapter in their lifecycle, handed over to a new person to travel and experience them as a belt, accessory, pouch, or traveler bag.
Those stories are sewed carefully by hand, using various techniques, high-quality threads, and durable materials. After all, we care for their ongoing lifecycle, and we strive for them to serve you as their new owner and carrier in the best way possible.
