Hamilton Perkins Collection produces designer travel bags made from recycled materials.
Hamilton Perkins Collection was founded on a mission to produce affordable designer bags that look good, perform well, and make a difference. To do it, the company has partnered with fabric manufacturer Thread International to ensure each bag is made from 17.5 recycled plastic bottles and lined with one yard of billboard vinyl. The company also supports fair wage initiatives in Haiti and Honduras and sources raw materials strategically to save water, create jobs, and alleviate plastic pollution in developing nations. Hamilton Perkins Collection also makes t-shirts composed of a 50/50 mixture of recycled plastic bottles and reclaimed cotton.
Hamilton Perkins began with a $10,000 Kickstarter campaign, reaching the goal in under a week. It went on to win the 2016 Virginia Velocity Tour business pitch competition, hosted by the Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
