The pencil case, a mostly underrated piece of equipment. It's simple, it's practical, it looks good and it keeps your stuff organized. What else do you need? Well this one in particular is made from recycled materials, so it doesn't have a negative impact on the planet. If this didn't convince you, go ahead and loose all your pens. Have fun finding them back.
Take into account that the material is repurposed from old banners, so the colors on your product might not correspond 100% to the example showed in the photos.

Zoomed in on the materials
The main material of this pencil case is repurposed vinyl banner material from outdated banners from the University of Antwerp. Although it is not an organic material (it cannot be composted) it is still an eco-friendly material option, be it for the reason that it is material that is saved from going to a landfill.
The loops on either end of the product are made from old UAntwerp keycords.
The zipper consists solely of polyester, which isn't a very sustainable material. However, because both the coil (teeth) and the tape are made from the same material it makes the recycling way easier than if they are a different material. The metal for the slider is the most durable and robust option.
The Obvious x UAntwerp brand label is woven with polyester yarn of which 50 procent is recycled. It's Oeko-Tex 100 certified, which means it's clear of any toxic materials and is safe for skin contact.
