Fannytastic ‘ Boro Red and Tan ‘ Patchwork Fanny Pack ‘ Bum Bag ‘ Cross Body Bag ‘ Made in USA
The Moonrise Project puts the sustainability message of Diamond Brand Gear into action. The fabric for our American Boro and Rescue series was originally destined for the landfill before we found it and re-purposed it into something new and beautiful!
We’ve dug into the Diamond Brand archives once again for this one; it’s the original “Fannytastic” waist pack first seen in our 1981 catalog. (Yes, “Fannytastic” is what they called it back then). We’ve copied the original pattern, we’re using new old stock buckles made by the same manufacturer we used in the 1980’s, and we’ve even found a stash of the original woven labels that were used on these back in the day. The difference between then and now is that today we are repurposing our waste materials leftover from the production floor to build these one-of-a-kind waist packs.
Like the original, the features are minimal; just what you need and nothing more. This includes: a #5 zipper, 1 1/2″ webbing with an elastic web keeper, and an adjustable side release buckle.
Webbing extends to 48″ diameter.
Total Width: 21″
Compartment Width: 15″
Because this unique piece is made with up-cycled fabric, it is one of a kind!
When Diamond Brand Gear first came to the heart of the Smokey Mountains, sewing and craft were a dominant aspect of daily life in Asheville. We got our start in a small, defunct hosiery mill that quickly turned into a thriving factory. When the textile industry began to offshore their facilities, we made it our mission to revive the art of sewing and keep production in the USA. We are committed to the preservation of craftsmanship, the formation of a greener economy, and the creation of durable goods that enhance the experience of all adventurers. Thus the Moonrise Project was born to help elevate our scraps and help the world through Reclaiming, Reusing, and Recreating.
