MATERIALS WITH A STORY

Over 10 years ago, a young boy made his pocket money working the markets of Amsterdam. That’s where he first encountered market tarps. Years later, he came up with the idea to give new life to those old market tarps. The UNBEGUN adventure had officially begun. In a world of waste, there’s plenty of material to upcycle. Strong, sturdy material that’s weathered every storm imaginable. Or beautiful material left discarded on the factory floor, never to be used. Whether they’ve seen everything or nothing at all, at UNBEGUN, we turn these materials into laptop sleeves, bags and more. Unabashedly Amsterdam products, each with a distinct identity. Every piece that comes in has its own story. Its own quirks. From tent cloth to transport tarp.

HOW WE MAKE IT

First, we remove any nails or tape. The material is machine-washed, after which we give it a good, final scrub. Next, we pattern-cut the material to size. Each piece is unique and ends up looking little differently from the last. Finally, our seamstresses get to work. Maartje, for example. This former costume designer makes UNBEGUN products in her atelier. Completely by hand.
