Messie Design gets its name from “messie syndrome,” a reference to a compulsive refusal to throw items away. Turning the often distressing term on its head, their designs showcase how seemingly useless rubbish can be up cycled into something useful. The line of messenger bags, purses , and clutches each feature the overlooked medium of film , recycled into usable totes.

The upcycled bags seem study and quite functional for everyday use. Inhabitat recently spotted a few of their products at Designersblock during the 2016 London Design Festival . Messie Design explains how their philosophy informs their creations: “all things considered, we are also what we reject and what, more or less consciously, we lose.” + Messie Design + London Design Festival + Inhabitat coverage of London Design Festival Images via Inhabitat, Messie Design
