We built Tomas Saraceno's Aerocene, an open-source floating sculpture: "Inflated only by air, lifted only by the sun, carried only by the wind, towards a sustainable future."
We used 1000 sq feet of sails to create an entry arch at the Masonic Center in SF. All the sails converged at one point. Below, employees of a company we can't mention came together for their global conference.
We collaborated with Jay Nelson to make the tent and interior cushions for his Brat.
Creating a hammock system for the parks department in Hall County, Georgia. Structure and seats designed in collaboration with our friends@somosnu. Seats made from up-cycled windsurf sails. Pipe structure constructed and powder coated “Mafia blue” by Saint Udio of Athens, Georgia.
Working with @frenchguycooking to try and solve out his Grocery Bag problem ! Prototype#6is a great blend of both insulated Tyvek Air Cargo Covers, and Recycled Sailcloth. Feedback : I've been using it a lot lately and I must say I love it. Very light, super solid, and the look is clean yet distinctive.
We recently partnered with our friends@theoceancleanupt o recycle their used skirt material into duffle bags, and we loved the challenge!
The Ocean Cleanup aims to rid the world’s oceans of plastic with the development of their passive cleanup technology, which consists of a 2000-foot floating pipe and a 10-foot skirt attached beneath. The skirt section we used is retired from a tow test they performed on their cleanup system in May. We received the skirt at our studio in San Francisco which we then cut into smaller panels, washed, and sewed into a final product.
An upcycling project focused on creating new materials from Sneaker Waste. We source Sneaker Waste to produce circular materials and collaborate to create design-driven products with a unique sustainability story.
Mafia is more than just bags. We rethink materials and give them new life. We partnered with Patagonia to up-cycle retired jackets and make a unique tote and apron for Patagonia Provisions. Designed and manufactured in San Francisco, this apron is made out of 100% up-cycled materials: Climbing ropes salvaged from Yosemite, sails collected in San Francisco Bay Area, pockets cut from retired Patagonia jackets.
