All products in Cotopaxi's (Re)Purpose™ Collection use fabric left over from other companies’ larger production runs. That’s what makes their Del Día bags one of a kind, and their Teca Windbreakers limited-edition: We take high-quality, remnant fabric originally produced for another purpose to create these products. Every (Re)Purpose™ product keeps fabric out of the landfill and puts it in the hands of thoughtful adventurers like you.
THE DEL DÍA STORY
Each pack in the Del Día Collection is made with remnant materials by employees who have creative control over its final look. This means that no two packs are alike. From fabric to thread, your Del Día is one of a kind.
Bold colors, small details, and personality. The Del Día Collection is all of these, but the bigger story is about enabling the people who make our products. When you pick up one of these packs, what you're seeing is the “signature” of the employees who made it.
The Del Día products take material repurposing to the next level, using smaller batches of excess material than our Repurposed Collection.
- Employees at our factory in the Philippines select rolls of excess fabric.
- Using these remnant materials, expert designers and sewers mix and match fabrics and components (e.g., zippers, zipper pulls, buckles, and thread) to their liking.
- The result? Waste-saving, one-of-a-kind products, with a built-in connection between our team of designers, sewers, and you.
