PORTLAND, Ore. — North St. Bags is proud to announce the partnership with it’s newest supplier — EcoPak. EcoPak is the first and only 100% recycled waterproof sailcloth on the market, and it’s going into almost everything the Portland bag producer makes. It’s also a VOC free, recycled product with the same durability and performance of traditional nylon sailcloth.
“We care deeply about making sure our business is run as sustainably as possible,” North St. Bags founder Curtis Williams explains. “We were thrilled to find EcoPak and it was a no-brainer to pick them up as our new sailcloth supplier.”
North St. has long used sailcloth both as a liner underneath Cordura, or as a shell itself, in it’s backpacks, hip packs, panniers, and duffles.
In addition to incorporating it as the liner in all waterproof bags, there is a line of limited edition, completelyrecycled fabric bags on the way.
